Comfort and Violence

publishing2How’s this for some publishing juxtaposition?

On Friday, Washington Post‘s sextegenarian, Pulitzer Prize-winning “Style” editor Henry Allen tackled a writer and started punching him in the face after the guy tried to deflate a conflict over a story by suggesting Allen “not be such a c—sucker.”  Can’t imagine why that didn’t work.

But if pressroom combat isn’t your thing, perhaps you should relax by reserving a room at New York City’s Library Hotel, where each floor has six book-stuffed rooms organized according to the Dewey Decimal System. 

If they give you a choice between room 800.001 and room 1100.005 for your romantic get-away, definitely pick the former.
