Editorial Correction

Dear Readers:

Ms. Peace Corps (not Americorps) has kindly redirected your humble Sable Crow, who is now flying in roughly the right direction--as the crow flies, of course.

Dear Sable Crow:

I did Peace Corps not Americorps. Americorps is for poor people staying in the United States who make a liveable salary and get something like $5,000 per year for tuition. Peace Corps is for middle class American who want to "experience life" and adventure while earning a salary that sits firmly below the poverty level on any scale while the interest piles up on their student loans.

Also I'm glad that you like the theory of primacy and I would love to take credit for it, but it's actually rooted in attachment theory which is a theory that is in the vein of evolution (meaning there's something of substance linking up to it). Parenting from the inside out as well Keeping the love you find are two good "self-help" books on this subject.


- Ms. PEACE CORPS

Dear Ms. Peace Corps:

The fact-checking staff at Sable Crow is terribly understaffed, abysmally underfunded, and is sadly ill-informed about the distinction between Peace Corps and Americorps. We here at Sable Crow were simply glad we spelled "corps" right because frankly it's like "knife" or "yacht" and doesn't make any damn sense. We freely invite you to rely on our counsel regarding ties or the macroeconomy, and not on federal government agencies or programs.

We graciously accept your recommendation for self-help books, and have added the following to our Amazon wish-list as educational pick-me-ups after making embarassingly public errors about our friends' lives: Living Poor: A Peace Corps Chronicle and this gem, Gay and Single...Forever?

I've provided hotlinks to Amazon for the zealous among you; you know who you are.

We here at Sable Crow deeply value our readers and friends, apologize for our errors, and welcome your suggestions for further self-help books.
