For sale at Grand Central

A graduate of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism is selling her short stories in the subway for $2 each. (Via Traveler’s Diagram.)

She’s doing a little better than you might think: “on good days she sells out of them, unloading 20 copies or more of each of her three stories.” By my calculations, that works out to $120 a day, or $600 for five days of work. (Unemployment in New York State pays a maximum of $405 per week.)
