"Several weeks ago, I’m told, Abramson discovered that her pay and her pension benefits as both executive editor and, before that, as managing editor were considerably less than the pay and pension benefits of Bill Keller, the male editor whom she replaced in both jobs."
There’s a history behind the upheaval. Recently, I’m told, Abramson learned that she was earning much less than her male predecessor.

+Stephen Burt thinks this +Joseph Massey poem is about attention. Google thinks it's about yard furniture, Latino fatherhood, and Nazi jet fighters. Dilemma of the age: my head is with Burt, my heart swoons for the machines.

A little piece on Bill Knott for Page-Turner.
Knott had an odd penchant for self-deprecation: he insisted, loudly, on his own insignificance.

"Now they seep out of school—to what? To nothing, to fuck-all. The young (you can see it in their faces , the stegosaurus-rugged no-hopers, the parrot-crested blankies, they've come up with an appropriate response to this, which is: nothing. Which is nothing, which is fuck-all. The dole-queue starts at the exit to the playground. Riots are their rumpus-room, sombre London their jungle-gym. Life is hoarded elsewhere by others. Money is so near you can almost touch it, but it is all on the other side—you can only press your face up against the glass. In my day, if you wanted, you could just drop out. You can't drop out any more. Money has seen to that. There's nowhere to go. You cannot hide from money. You just cannot hide out from money any more. And so sometimes, when the nights are hot, they smash and grab." (M. Amis, MONEY)

Written in 1984? Eerily relevant.

No surprise around these parts, but it sounds like Maggie did it again. I can't wait to see this book.
