On the site: Jog brings us the Week. I wish Jog did this for all my weekly intake: Food, entertainment, humans. Etc. And we’re pleased to re-present Bob Levin’s 2008 interview with S. Clay Wilson.

A few months after this interview took place, Wilson sustained disabling brain injuries requiring special care. Contributions maybe sent to Wilson’s Special Needs Trust, PO Box 14854, San Francisco, CA 94114.
[UPDATE FROM TIM: Here's a link to the online home of the trust.]
