Redesigning the Boarding Pass - Journal - Boarding Pass / Fail
Hello there. Thanks for flying Delta. I am sure you are no doubt trying to figure out what the *$#% to do with the piece of paper you have in your hand right now. You're confused, lost, and just want to get on your flight. It's cool, we don't really care, and we sure as hell don't want to make this process easy and enjoyable for you. Instead we hired a small, blind parakeet to lay out your boarding pass--you know, just to keep you guessing. Have fun.
At NEA, a daring idea to help artists rises again (The Denver Post)
"Current NEA chairman Rocco Landesman, a no-nonsense former Broadway producer, has openly floated the notion of reinstating those individual artist fellowships. The issue, he says with certainty, is not dead.
"'In many ways, the question of supporting individual artists is the question for any chairman of the NEA,' Landesman said via e-mail."
