    I thought you’d never ask.

    I’ll go to your blog & try to figure out paper sizes & quantities. You know I always have trouble with that.

    I think you are absolutely right to be doing what you are doing with the books.

    Wow, I appreciate that friends have taken a look at my mangled vispo effort.

    It’s meant to be a vispo rendering of a section (that of course doesn’t exist) from Ezra Pound’s very long poem, “The Cantos.”

    Pound went on and on about American history in a way that is almost like conspiracy theory.

    I found that article about Pres. Andrew Jackson and the banks. Andrew Jackson tried to break up the monolithic banking structure that was emerging in the 19th century. He saw the danger. Obviously, it didn’t work. We have Bank of America.

    Again, thank you dear friends.

    P.s. Most structures – whether they be language or physically based, seem to be failing. Its where the world is. One jolt at the precipice and who knows.
