Things I Found on the Subway, Part 1

Here's a new feature on BillyBlog: the Things I Found on the Subway series. Yesterday, my eye was caught by the words "First Editions." As a collector of first editions, I was intrigued. Alas, it was merely a sample square of wallpaper on a subway seat. I was nonetheless intrigued, especially by its name, "Stephanie Texture." Thought I'd share it with you today.

In other news, a 22-year old poet drowned yesterday in the Hudson River after jumping in to retrieve a backpack that contained some of his notebooks. His loss is being mourned as a huge tragedy and a waste but, if you're a poet, that certainly is an honorable way to go, and more memorable as well.

Have a good weekend.
