Thank you for recognizing me

This is for the nice lady working at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction yesterday.
She told me of a story about a girl in her high school who went to school everyday pretending to be pregnant. Evidently she kept getting bigger and bigger until her religious family found out, contacted the administration and told her to stop. This is an amazing conceptual statement for a high school girl to make and I applaud her gumption for going forth with the project. I had a hard time with one day! I need to do a little research, because apparently this girl was on MTV.

The Fist Person Arts Salon is coming up on Wed. so I hope to see you there. Also, don't forget that I can sign a brand spanking new copy of the book for you!
