RIP Arts & Letters Daily

“The magazine Lingua Franca and its parent company University Business LLC filed for bankruptcy earlier this year…. We understand that the assets of University Business, including this Website, are to be auctioned in New York City on October 24, 2002. For further information, we suggest contacting the Trustee.” —RIP Arts & Letters DailyA & L Daily)
