Two fings.

Fing one: Someone has put a V for Vendetta mask on the lamp post outside Gosh! Comics on Berwick Street. We don't know who it was. It wasn't us. It could have been there for years. Photo.

Fing two: Michael Chabon wrote a brill essay on Katchor and you should check it out. It's in Maps & Legends.
