  1. August 3, 1962: Happy birthday, Walter Kirn! The novelist and cultural commentator wrote Up in the Air, which was made into a popular film. He turns 51 today.

  2. Any kind of art? My kind of man.

    • I like this one, too: “I feel like my head is finally the right size. I feel like it finally fits around my mind.” 😆
