Davy Rothbart has found his niche in the world by getting people to bend over. No, it's not what you're thinking. He has built a small empire by collecting discarded notes, letters, lists that people find on the ground. The Found magazine empire has spawned five books of hilarious, sad and bizarre paper flotsam maybe even something you lost. The latest edition, "Requiem for a Paper Bag," features contributions from Seth Rogen, Chuck D., Sarah Vowell, Devendra Banhart and Wire creator David Simon. Rothbart hosts a presentation, with slide show, featuring scraps from the Found anthology.
