“The Pulitzer Prize in fiction takes dead aim at mediocrity and almost never misses; the prize is simply not given to work of the first rank, rarely even to the second; and if you believed yourself to be a writer of that eminence, you are now assured of being over the hill–not a sturdy mountain flower but a little wilted lily of the valley.” William H Gass.

Q: How many hipsters does it take to change a lightbulb?

* Really nice breakfast place in an obscure part of town – you’ve probably never heard of it.
