"Studies say that once you make about $75,000 a year, earning more money doesn’t affect your overall happiness. Is there a baseline follower equivalent for Twitter?"
I wrote about searching for the ~perfect follower number~.
Thanks to everyone who came out for HEY LADIES: LIVE! at Housing Works last night!! (at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe)

The top photo shows an LAPD policewoman named Florence Coberly, who in a dangerous undercover operation, was asked to lure a serial rapist named Joe Parra. This would require placing herself in harm’s way so police could catch him just before the act. Supported by more than thirty cops hidden in unmarked cars and stationed around the neighborhood, Coberly did exactly that, drawing the suspect, which in turn drew her backup. Parra tried to run, and photo two shows him after he was gunned down. These shots are from 1952, a year at the end of which she would win the LAPD’s Policewoman of the Year award.
Ta-Nehisi Coates worked on this for two years. It’s finally been published.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.
