Two unrelated things

by Jess

I’d like to make you aware of two important developments.

First, Kyle Minor interviewed Pinckney Benedict in The Rumpus.  My love affairs with Kyle and Pinckney are well documented, but putting my own feelings aside, this is one of the better author interviews I’ve read.

Second, global climate change is hotly (get it?) debated, but there’s one paramount issue we should all be concerned about: drought and natural disaster have caused a worldwide hop shortage, which could mean less, and costlier, beer in the future.  This is a crisis, people!
