Last night Cedric's "Barry's got plenty of ideas -- always bad ones" and Wally's "THIS JUST IN! ROUGH WATERS!" went up. That was their joint-humor post. The non-humor posts last night revolved around a theme: write a book you have and that you've selected at random: Mike's "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" (Pauline Kael's movie critiques), Trina's "Collected Stories" (Tennessee Williams' Collected Stories), Rebecca's "pigs at the trough" (Arianna Huffington book), Kat's "Rock Encyclopedia" (the classic text), Ann's "4 men, 1 woman" (Gore Vidal's Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace), Marcia's "Embassytown" (China Mieville's new novel), Elaine's "Left Bank and Other Stories" (short stories by Jean Rhys), Ruth's "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" (novelizations of Disney films in an attempt to increase reading among children -- this is a novelization of a Disney film starring Kurt Russell), Betty's "Lorraine Hansberry: The Collected Plays" (the title says it all but for any who might not place the name immediately, she is the playwright who wrote A Raisin in the Sun) and Stan's "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" (Greg Palast's classic book).
those are the monday night posts -- including all the theme posts. i wanted to be sure to note them. i found something of value in each 1, by the way. with marcia, for example, i saw that when she loves a book, she really tries to hook you with it. (she's that way in person too. she's also a big reader with an emphasis on sci fi.) there were just a lot of details in each 1 that were actually person but the writer may or may not have known that.
now, do you google? i may not any more because i don't like impartial outlets that suddenly take sides and aren't honest about it. byron tau and ben smith (politico) report:
so what do you think happened?
reading the full article i thought google made a special deal with barack and doesn't intend to make that sort of a deal with any other candidate. no ralph nader, no to cynthia mckinney, no to republicans, no to every 1 but barack.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
