Oh good, more NYC navel-gazing. I was afraid we'd run out!

Free rein. You're a book publisher!

I was just going to say that myself. What's next? "Hone in on"? A "flaw in the ointment"? I mean, jeepers.

One is struck by the broad diversity shown in the accompanying photograph.

For that matter: "Our friends ... has"? Also, I'd probably go with a comma after starting that sentence with "But", and a semicolon between the two clauses. [Exit Frustrated Writer; staggers off toward fritzing neon sign: "Sour Grapes Club".]

"free reign"?!? This editor is illiterate.

Maybe one or more of the essays involves pony play.

Gotta get a copy for my daughter. Wait -- Kindle only? Never mind.

Not only that, I can't see it on Amazon UK. Evidently only technologically enabled Americans are allowed to read about divers... oh sod it.

Well fuck. Maybe...it involves pony play and a king. Nope, doesn't work.

I don't think I've seen a horse up close and in-person since I was five. 'Reign' is more evocative/relevant and should be the rule, if any. F-bomb is an ordained word now, right? F-bomb your OG. (or is it 'you're?')

This could be either:
F-bomb, you're OG!
