Cool art, but I'd not heard about Corita Kent's background until now. 
Corita Kent, the nun-turned-internationally-renowned-pop-artist, gained popularity for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s. Kent drew on popular culture to spread her own spiritually inspired messages.

It's Mark Zuckerberg's birthday. Facebook's IPO this week may make it worth more than Disney, Ford, and Kraft. Not bad for 28.

I'll admit that I'd not heard of Althea Gibson before. But now that I've read up on her, what a woman. 
An animated Google Doodle celebrates Althea Gibson as the US Open begins in New York.

Here, from Wikitravel, is some sage advice on a ritual that even I did not realize was so complicated until I read this passage:

"When invited to a meal in a private home it is considered polite for a guest to ask if they can bring anything for the meal, such a dessert, a side dish, or for an outdoor barbecue, something useful like ice or plastic cups or plates. The host will usually refuse except among very close friends, but it is nonetheless considered good manners to bring along a small gift for the host. A bottle of wine, box of candies or fresh cut flowers are most common. Gifts of cash, prepared ready-to-serve foods, or very personal items (e.g. toiletries) are not appropriate."

Bringing a microwaveable dish to a dinner at a friend's house seems like a surefire path to social ostracism.

While I remember the book, its art style, and the fantastic cover image, most of the actual prose has slipped away. At this point, I remember only one line: “We'll eat you up– we love you so!” The funny thing is that, in my mind, the wild things aren’t saying it. My mom is. I vividly recall my mom reading that line aloud, adopting her best husky monster howl. I remember us reading it together more than I remember the book itself.
