With his finger on the pulse of politics, music and philosophy, the Sticker Dude is one of my 'go-to' people for current affairs. Lucky I am a trusty recipient of the Sticker Dude's clipping service. While my family and friends send me links, I get a big fat envelope of clippings from Joel. Snail mail is the best...
My slow response means that some of the 'news' is caught in a time-warp - the time sensitive nature of some things creates a parallel universe of reality but whenever I read them, they are equally interesting and sometimes the reflective quality adds nuance.
What can I say. We are all in the throes of 24 election news coverage and Ginsberg had it covered back in '95.
And the Nation! One of the things I miss about leaving NYC is not getting the Nation. It's amazing and ridiculous to think that the Editor and I were both Editor-in-Chief of the same school paper, in consecutive years! She edits the Nation: I get snail mail with clippings from her paper and I blog.

Many thanks Joel.
