Meet Frances Goldin, 87 years old, and a longtime activist and literary agent. Some of the writers she represents include Barbara Kingsolver, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Dorothy Allison, Adrienne Rich, and our own Staceyann Chin.
The Guardian included this shot of her at the OWS protests yesterday. Evidently, she was doing her best to get arrested (for the tenth time in her life).
File under: Someone Worth Knowing.

Tactical Camouflage

Suits are camouflage in the warrens of Wall Street. And there are other advantages. Need a bathroom? Try wearing a suit. It’s easy. Want to walk past a police barricade? Put on a suit.
