"In 1989 my husband passed on; I was 36-years-old and left with 3 small children. For some reason I wrote to Kurt Vonnegut and thanked him for his books and his compassion. I did not expect a reply. He must have been a kind man, as he sent this to me within a month of writing to him. I have always wanted to share his kind words. It meant, and still means, so much to me."
Dearest Marianne Brown --

It can't be said often enough, "It is the woman who pays." The miracle is that so many can and do somehow. I was in love (still am) with a widow with four kids (two not her own). She somehow raised them all on a teeny weeny salary. I told her one time, "I worry about women." She said, "Don't."

Cheers --

(Signed)

Kurt Vonnegut

In 2003, with her prom fast approaching and a date as yet undecided, Ohio-based Nikki Simmons took a chance and sent an invite to her idol: a certain flame-haired talk show host. She says, "I asked Conan O'Brien to prom when I was in eleventh grade... so many many years ago... Although he turned me down, he was awesome enough to write back! I'll always be a Conan fan!".
Late Night with Conan O'Brien

Jan.24, 2003

Dear Nikki -

Thanks for your very flattering offer. It's great to know I have such a devoted fan out there, and I'm sure you ould make a great prom date (I didn't go to mine - it's a very sad story).

Unfortunately, I got married recently and my wife doesn't allow me to go to proms anymore with cute 16 year old girls. Still, it was very cool of you to ask me. Thanks and have a great evening.

Your Friend,

Conan

    I think I am going to get a bottle of red wine and drink it tonight!

    Can I make a suggestion? There is a bottle you can get from Specs that is amazing and costs less than $30.

    Well there are a lot of them, but if you're curious I'll point you to this particular one.

    I am not close to specs AND that is expensive!

    I usually buy a red table wine or a chianti in the $12 range because I don't appreciate wine quality anyway :€

    Albert Einstein:

    February 12, 1950
    Dear Mr. Marcus:

    A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. The striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion. Not to nourish the delusion but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of peace of mind.

    With my best wishes,
    sincerely yours,

    Albert Einstein.

    "Mr. Marcus"'s son had just died of polio.

    it's people like you that are reasons why dubstep is popular

    and shit

    i hate dubstep

    it is the disco of our time and it metaphorically pisses in my ear everytime i hear it.

    sometimes it's pretty incredible to think about just how recent it was when black people were property

    it's not a lot of time!

    it's kind of remarkable that- as unequal as they still are- the land ownership and income disparities have closed so much

    history and economics be crazy

    Narwhal, I see your avatar and I am disappoint.

    I felt like the original avatar put me behind the 8-ball in any given conversation with how outright offensive it was.

    I do that well enough on my own most of the time, thank you very much! :D

    I liked pop music back in 2004 when hip hop ruled.

    it was awesome

    and the music was good

    you guys should remember that.

    Rhianna was decent looking then she was a twat and got THUG LIFE tattooed on her knuckles.

    she was a twat?

    her dad was addicted to crack cocaine

    she worked in a clothing stall in barbados as a child

    i think she has had a rough enough life to get a thug life tattoo without a white dude on the internet calling her a twat

    Dinner has been postponed due to lack of Lindsay.

    This is what I'm talking about with the inconsistent getting home times!

    The good news is my mise-en-place is done, so getting food to table will be super-easy when she gets home.
