I’m trying to get off the Twitter/headline cyber crack and read some longer form stuff. So, today’s long read is what may be a letter from Mick Jagger discussing Keith Richard’s autobiography (review/amazon), namely the latter’s allegation that Mr. Jagger has a small penis. One money quote: “for a show in front of 60,000 people for which we are being paid some $6 or $7 million for a few hours’ work, I like to suggest to everyone that we start on time, and that we each have in place a personal plan, in whatever way suits us best, to stay conscious for the duration of the show.” Slate published the letter which was supposedly accidentally mailed to a journalist. I dunno how likely that story is, but the letter itself is well-written, funny, seemingly revealing and, as per the purpose of this blog, long.
