    As far as the auction, I wish I had some mad bank. *sigh*

    I’d bid for Katha Pollitt, but it’s too fucking scary.

    I want Katha Pollitt to edit my dissertation!
    I think someone told me that she has an MA in my field, too (classics). And my thesis is about gender and agency — so really I think it was meant to be. Too bad I’m broke.

    And her editing is limited to five pages.
