Hi folks, and happy Saturday!
Sorry to be posting this today (with a few missing links I just can’t find anymore) as the site was down due to some hacking. My web gurus worked on it all day and by 8pm the site was back up, albeit without the latest post. Anyway, this brings us to this morning, a Saturday, and I suppose a fine day to post the links as any.

Folks who know me well, know that I’m rather obsessed with Mickey Drexler (as in I’ve been tracking his career since my teens and can go in to hours’ long discussion on how Gap messed up by firing him) so this is cool and interesting news. Also, Warby Parker is an amazing, amazing company and I’m totally getting glasses from them soon!
This article has been going around on the interwebs – and if you haven’t read it, it’s worth a few minutes. Many points are very accurate. Why generation Y yuppies are unhappy.
A cat named Kuzya works in a Russian library and wears a bow-tie. Perhaps my favorite story out of Russia in I don’t know how long.
This Pope, you guys! I think I love him. [The link to the interview is a long article. I cannot recommend it enough, but suggest you break it up into digestible pieces.]
New blood test can tell if your infection is viral or bacterial – could stem overuse of antibiotics.
My daughter’s homework is killing me. A parent laments the volume of homework of his barely teenage daughter.
