There exist people who possess more books than I do. Really! Here are ten featured in +Literary Hub!
However, please note the difference between a designed library and one designed for use!

On St George's Day and +William Shakespeare's birthday, see the late Owiso Odera bring "Othello" to life in this spectacular 2-minute scene from Act 3 Owiso perfomed at +Amherst College's renowned +Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC.
Tragically, Owiso went to Heaven this past year. Fortunately, we can be reminded of his tremendous talent through his TV, theatre, and film work that remains accessible.

I consider it aspirational! "There’s a Japanese Word For People Who Buy More Books Than They Can Actually Read"

As +United Airlines' reputation suffers, +The Economist reports 500,000+ ticketed passengers on overbooked flights last year were left at US airport gates.
On 9/11, the United flights that crashed into +World Trade Center were fortunately only about 1/3 full. Today, however, times have changed and loads are tightly managed and overbooking is a primary tool for maximizing revenue.

Another PR disaster for +United Airlines. The unfortunate gentleman was reportedly a doctor who the +Chicago P.D., as reported in +Esquire, said fell and hit his head.
Horrible, horrible optics. Perhaps there is a reason I have not missed flying UA for a few years. (I fell out over being short-changed frequent flyer mileage.)

Shocking tragedy yesterday in St. Petersburg. Fortunately, friends and colleagues there are fine. My compassion goes to the Peterburzhtsy (phonetic translation of петербуржцы for local residents) on the senseless killed and wounded innocent people.
Beautiful, bright subway system there. I am shown ascending from taking a train. True feelings of solidarity here.

Get rich not-so-quick advice from +CNBC recommended by Michelle Singletary in The +Washington Post. Of course, behind every successful fortune -- and keeping it -- is solid tax advice!

The GOP plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (or "Obamacare") is complex, contains many tax provisions, and is likely to affect you no matter how you get health insurance in the US now.

This weekend, recalling of the horrors of the 3.11 Triple Disaster in Japan and the redemptive events that followed -- Without electricity for traffic signals in my town for a week, can you imagine there were no traffic accidents?! Amazing, no?!
The care neighbors demonstrated toward other neighbors as well as strangers remains an impressive memory. Also, not forgotten are the fine efforts of the many OPERATION TOMODACHI volunteers (friends too numerous to tag here) and @U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Forces Japan (在日米軍司令部) who engaged in Sendai and Fukushima area rescue and clean-up ops. In tragedy, reason for hope and the best of humanity were clearly evident.

Yayoi Kusama exhibition at +Smithsonian's +Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., on through May 14. She is a unique person and Japanese artist known for her polka dots.

Art investors highly prize her 1960s avant-garde pieces. A fan, I have driven past the Tokyo mental hospital she rents accommodation in. More details are contained in this review in +The New York Times that reads excitingly:
