Calvin Trillin For Mayor Of Awesome Town

Is there anyone out there who dislikes Calvin Trillin? If so, go fuck yourself, he is a GODDAMN TREASURE. Here he is explaining why you shouldn’t get all upset that some punk kid is the managing editor of the New Yorker (aside from the fact that she has a job and you don’t). He was also being awesome on the op-ed page of today’s Times with this sharp, funny piece about who’s really culpable for the financial crisis. Plus, there’s this recent Nation poem about Roman Polanski. Calvin Trillin rules. I want him to be my dad!
