Dear friends,

There are going to be some exciting things happening here at the Daily! For starters, after nearly two years of editing the site, I’m going to be shifting my focus to writing: as a contributing editor and sort of house writer, I’ll now be appearing here on a daily (no pun intended) basis!

As to the editorial side, I’m delighted to hand things over to Dan Piepenbring, who has graciously made the westward trek to lend TPR his talents, smarts, and musical acumen. (One of these days I’ll actually get all my perfume bottles, matchbooks, and ink bottles out of his desk.) Watch this space to see the wonders he works.

As ever,

    Has Dan read any books?

    Like, really read them, I mean.

    Dear Alison – I hear you’ve been given Princeton employment because of your Sharapova judgement. If that’s not true, don’t “offer” it. I hear that she has polio because I caused it as her friend. Why don’t you accept her legitimacy as a USSR/USA international citizen and use your career, your Chicago degree, and your great writing contract to help her out of this supermodel situation. As you’ve observed about “my mother and her resolution to refuse Russian citizenship”, you’re perfectly endowed with your equal rights to status with my humble submission to speak, counsel, and humour sport authorities when they ask wealthy citizens to act like Sharapova, play for polio, and ski for a living — I guess, pity is not a matter of power. That’s what your youtube is for. I’m sorry, I must be confusing the polio. Obviously your expertise gives you the power to use words to heal. You’ll have to say that she lived in our apartment and is protected by democratic rights to refuse medical treatment in the name of sport and professional association, and be fully removed from the investment that caused the disease. You’ll then have to say that you do not know the whereabouts of Luke’s former girlfriend in Chicago, and Maria was invited without her consent to your knowledge, and she lives a fully separate existence outside that private knowledge. Polio, by the way, is not sex, which ski and tennis seem to publicise for our legal culture.

    Should I ask Jane to comment about the insult?
