On A Chat With The Hairpin's New Editor, Emma Carmichael

Edith! I hope you know how much we all appreciate the tiny little utopian corner of the internet you've carved out for us. You're a terrific writer and a great editor and finder of talent. I hope wherever you end up, there is always a spider by your side.

On Other People's Kids, Homes

@leon s I think you're thinking of Barcade. Which I find slightly intolerable, BUT. They have Arkanoid AND 1941, so, you know, sometimes.
