Kick Out the Jams, Motherfuckers.

I luv this week’s issue.

Sarah Mirk is back! with this excellent profile about Ballard’s self-appointed crank, whose mission is to rip the veneer of the neighborhood.

We have a new music column by our new music writer, Eric Grandy, called Fucking in the Streets. I haven’t read the column yet, but the time has come for each and every one of you to decide whether you are going to be the problem or you are going to be the solution.

And my brother Tom Nissley, who is smarter than every GRE question ever, reviews one of those 33 1/3 books, this one on James Brown, alongside the new Pynchon novel. A beautiful books cocktail.

Also, it must be noted that newsie Erica C. Barnett, who filed about 500 stories this week, including her usual chock-full-of-scoops column, is the new Ben Jacklet. (Google him, kids.)

Hey, I used to live w/ Jacklet.. haven't seen him in years but a quick Google search (on your orders) suggests he's no longer at the Portland Tribune but I can't tell what came after. Any clues?

Fish, I don't know.
I heard freelancing and happily house husbanding.
