Interview with a professional safe-cracker.
Part of an ongoing series
at McSweeney's. "Q: Do you ever look inside? A: I NEVER look. It's none of my business. Involving yourself in people's private affairs can lead to being subpoenaed in a lawsuit or criminal trial. Besides, I'd prefer not knowing about a client's drug stash, personal porn, or belly button lint collection. When I'm done I gather my tools and walk to the truck to write my invoice. Sometimes I'm out of the room before they open it. I don't want to be nearby if there is a booby trap." 2012.05.30

An interview with Dita von Teese.
"In my opinion, elegance has nothing to do with "how much" is shown and far more to do with the way one presents herself. I've seen beautiful, highly erotic nearly pornographic shows that are more elegant than some burlesque acts. You can't equate the degree of nudity or suggestion, it's all about the overall way it's done." 2012.05.21

College graduates, then, are taking it on the chin thanks to the weak economy. And research tells us that the price isn't temporary: students who graduate into a bad economy never recover the lost ground. Instead, their earnings are depressed for life." 2012.05.02
