Happy Birthday K-Stew!
This one goes out to you K-Stew: who has a mysterious hatred for Uma Thurman, is always up for hours of cooking something delicious, thinks it’s ridiculous that I prefer to drink everything out of a straw (beer included. yes, she may have a point.), is a really bad “looker,” and just happens to bring me “smart-food” popcorn at all the right times. Xx

Unstable World

"Life is becoming more volatile for all of us. I came back from India, and my friends in the U.S. were losing their jobs. Part of what I tried to capture in this book is how people with very little support improvise to improve their lives in an incredibly unstable world, and what intelligence and ingenuity that takes … We often have an exaggerated sense of what nonprofits and governments are doing to help the poor, but the really inspiring thing is how much the poor are doing to help themselves."

Katherine Boo, author of the forthcoming book - Behind the Beautiful Forevers, interviewed in Marie Claire, February 2012
