Both of these articles struck my fancy in today’s Times.

First: Seattle’s effect on the book industry, because Starbucks, Costco AND Amazon are all headquartered there.

Second: This article made me feel old.  I do not understand most of these texting abbreviations.  And I’m from Bethesda where we say “it’s a def poss.”
