Things I Read

A Las Vegas man is suing the author and publisher of Hot Chicks With Douchebags, a collection of photographs and essays that document girls and the dubious men they date. Read "Alleged 'Douchebag' Sues Author."

The word "meh" just made it into the English dictionary, which makes me happy because I use it quite a bit. You know: "Quantum of Solace? Meh." "Squash? Meh." "It's all about...meh." Read "Meh."

As if you don't already waste a shitload of time at work browsing the Internet, I now present to you the LIFE Photo Archive, hosted by Google, curretly featuring photos from the 1860s—the motherfucking 1860s!—to today. Most were never published. Check out the LIFE Photo Archive.

Alan Goy at Experiment Farm explains why the auto industry should not get a free pass. I don't know much about the issue, but Alan lays out his argument well. Read "No Auto Bailout."

Despite the fact that I balked at the title of the essay, "Empathy for the Devil: How Theater Can Save Your Soul," Isaac Butler (of Parabasis) makes a rather compelling argument and somehow manages to tie it into issues of sexuality, race, and politics. I wouldn't be surprised if this fucker ran for office sometime in the near future. Read what he's got to say.

    Do you mean that squash the sport is meh, or squash the food? Because if it's squash the sport that you're talking about, then we're just going to have to agree to disagree . . . or we can agree that you're wrong.

  2. Oh, c'mon, like I have an opinion on ANY sports. I'm GAY. I don't even know what squash IS. :)
