...that I don't think about the English Beat as much as I perhaps should. Must I always "Save It for Later"?

Check out the latest—and last?—issue of Crowd magazine, full of good stuff, including fiction by Lynne Tillman (!) and Alan De Niro, an essay by Matthea Harvey, poetry by Johns Ashbery and Yau, comics by the addictive Jeffrey Brown — must I go on?!
