You have to perform in the subway before you’ve really made it, says Michael Bublé. From Salon:
Three-time Grammy Award winning Canadian singer-songwriter Michael Bublé made an appearance at New York City’s W. 67th Street subway stop today for an “impromptu” a capella performance of “Who’s Lovin’ You,” off his new album “To Be Loved.” Surrounded by the singers of Naturally 7, Bublé surprised commuters, Bublé said, “That is when you know you’ve made it.” He added, “Singing in the New York subway…is the most authentic, organic way to make music.”
A “We the People” petition was started to seek an answer from the White House about changing the U.S. Postal Service retirement account savings. The U.S.P.S. debt is largely due to a mandate to prefund 75 years of future retiree health benefits over 10 years. The petition asks for a few other changes as well.
As of today, the petition has 7,700 signatures in two and a half days, but another 92,000 are needed in the next month.

Meanwhile, The New York Times went online to see how the process of Internet gun sales works, and to uncover the identity of sellers and buyers. What reporters Michael Luo, Mike McIntire and Griff Palmer discovered was that online gun sites are an easy place for people illegally allowed to buy or sell guns to make a quick deal.
Mostly using the site Armslist, the reporters began responding to ads, and found a convicted felon, a fugitive, and a repeat offender trying to buy or sell firearms. They also discovered one seller who has advertised more than 100 guns, and another that has advertised more than 80. Over the past three months, the paper “identified more than 170,000 gun ads on Armslist.”
“The examination of Armslist raised questions about whether many sellers are essentially functioning as unlicensed firearms dealers, in contravention of federal law,” they write. The reporters site a A 2011 undercover investigation by the City of New York that examined “private party gun sellers on a range of Web sites, including Armslist, to see if they would sell guns to someone who said that they probably could not pass a background check, and found 77 of 125 online sellers agreed to sell the weapons anyway.”
