Hello everyone! A reminder that we just launched our newsletter, Drinks With Broads, and we’d love to see you there!

The news about the earthquake in Syria and Turkey is just devastating. If you live there, or have family there, I hope everything is okay. This is a good round-up of ways to help at the New York Times. (Not behind the paywall.)

Talk about flouncing! Bruce Springsteen’s ticket prices are so high that his fan site and magazine ‘Backstreets’ is shutting down after 43 years. (I joke. I think it’s possible that after 43 years of covering the Boss, the publisher is just burned out.) [Fortune]
