One of my favorite writers, David Rakoff, has died. I don’t know of another writer whose essays are so wonderfully read by his own tongue. Here is his performance from the most recent “This American Life” live show, which Kathleen and I were able to see, live-streamed to Jackson.
I am very sad. I selfishly wanted him to live longer, to write more books, to please my ear and mind and heart. Dear David, I love your words and stories, and I thank you.

The gas station in Florence, MS doesn’t have a very uplifting message for its customers.
These are pictures of two retail stores. “Justice” sells clothes for girls, and it’s a chain.
“Privelege” was a store in San Francisco, probably gone by now. I’d criticize their spelling, but I have to look it up in the dictionary all the time.
Any social commentary is yours for the making. I just thought it was funny. But it seems like a clothing store named “Privilege” is a least a little more honest than “Justice.”
