Is there anything sweeter than Jessie Jane always right by Mr. Powers's side? She is such a little angel. Seeing them together brings me such happiness. Lovely photo, Bobby.

I had been in touch with Barney Rosset last Sept/Oct 2011 when I had
sent him some chapters from my novel Vienna Dolorosa hoping he would take excerpts. For a few months he had
said, "Send me others..." which I did until he had maybe 10 chapters
(this had been going on for a few months) until I said, "You want the
complete book, I can mail a copy?" He said his eyesight wasn't too good
so I said I could mail a pdf copy and he could make it as big as he
wants and waited an answer...and waited...waited...until I got the news
this morning.

This is his publication that prints stories and articles I was trying to
get in:

Rest Barney

I saw those lines around Cooper Union on Wednesday afternoon. I have no idea what it's all about. I hope it's just an art project and not a harbinger of more construction.

Nice bit of publicity for Richard Edson. I hope it helps, and you get the tv series. You could sock away a good chunk of change from being in a tv series.

You say that things change, but that's not was has happened here. We have and continue to be incinerated.
