I have a slight crush on Abraham Lincoln.

After reading that Lincoln's Melancholy book, I have a little bit of a crush on old Abe. I mean, what's not to like? He's honest (not some kind of sunshine-blowing salesman jackass), he's tall, he tells hilarious stories, he's got that dark, depressed edge that I like so much...

Next crush: Joan Didion.

Well, if Joan bummed you out, all I've gotta say is, you better not go see that goddam gay cowboy movie.

I think you could find employment in Seattle. The job market is generally pretty good. You have skillz, as the youth say. But is it even ethical for me to tell you this? Doesn't New Orleans need you fighting the good fight?
