AND IMMORTALITY ...

Because I could not
stop for Death–
He kindly stopped for me–
The Carriage held but
just Ourselves–
And Immortality
.
— Emily Dickinson

MEASURE AT THE END

Selma Koch, a Manhattan store owner who earned a national reputation by helping women find the right bra size, mostly through a discerning glance and never with a tape measure, died Thursday at Mount Sinai Medical Center. She was 95 and a 34B.
— Douglas Martin. New York Times (obituary page writer), from The Dead Beat, Marilyn Johnson. Harper Collins, New York: 2006
