@8, I was wondering if she knows where she's going to, and if she likes the things that life is showing her. Also, of course, whether she gets what she's hoping for, when she looks behind her and there's no open door.
commented on On Being Solicited for Sex
This happened to me once, in San Francisco, when I was 18. It was after midnight and I was walking home from the BART station. I was wearing baggy pants and a hugely oversized wool sweater. Guy pulled over and called to me from his car. There were some other folks on the street who were clearly sex workers, so I don't know why he picked me (baggy clothes, walking briskly) over them (tight miniskirts, hanging out on the street).

I'll probably be sorry I put my $0.02 in, but:
I agree that Israel needs to get out of the occupied territories ASAP, and Bibi Netanyahu is a menace to all that is good. But it is also true that Hamas doesn't just want Israel out of the occupied territories. Hamas wants to destroy Israel entirely. They are very upfront about this. That makes it hard to negotiate with them.

I didn't know David Rakoff was also a visual artist (although his illustrations for "Fraud" should have given me a clue). Thanks for sharing that tumblr, Dan.
