Starr attraction

1. Buffalo rising? The Times reports optimistically on the city's waterfront development; over at the Willamette Week fellow Buffalo native Karla Starr fills Portlanders in on the revels of displaced Bills fans.

2. Have you picked up your copy of A Public Space?

3. James Atlas mentions The Believer in his New York magazine piece on The New York Review of Books. (That's a lot of itals for one sentence.)

4. If they make a Susan Sontag biopic, I want Selma Blair to play the young S.S.

Dear naive Mr. Park,

Willamette is pronounced, ahem, "will-AM-ett." Not "WILL-a-met." Not "Throat WARBLER mangrove."

I lived in Eugene, Oregon (YOO-gene, OR-uh-gun) for a decade. My folks persist in living there. It was the first Oregon word I learned to pronounce on moving there in 1979.

You have been duped!

Alas! So it is *three* syllables (the way I'd imagine), not four...? Hmm...
