We learn that a “visionary and relentless” Jeff Bezos continued to drive a beat-up Honda Accord even as he became a billionaire, but his reported remark to an Amazon sales team that they ought to treat small publishers the way a lion treats a sickly gazelle is apparently not deemed worthy of the historical record.↩︎ The Nation
“Charles was up-and-down on the television show. He certainly enjoyed what The Addams Family did for his earning power, but he said the characters were 'half as evil.' To be honest, he didn’t even really watch it, because on Friday nights he was usually out to dinner or on a date.”↩︎ Smithsonian
A sentiment analysis of Jane Eyre.
I analysed the words in Eyre,
The foul, the fair, I laid them bare,
And put them on the net to share
The sentiments I found in there.
In doing so, I must confess,
I saw a trend I hadn't guessed:
That all the parts I liked the best
Were also all the most depressed.
