Intention of Slideshows, Charticles Defeated by Zealous Tagging!

I wanted to know, for reasons that escaped me mere moments later, what Details might possibly have chosen for their list of "The 25 Greatest Gen X Books of All Time." (I think it was because the "of all time" part amused me.)

The wedding became an awkward party! And their breakup is very diffuse! One gay was mad at the other gay about his blog? And they were both being "mean" to each other? I don't know….


The English Language's 26 Most Important Letters

The English alphabet has ever been the center of the American literary universe — the letters of Whitman, of Edith Wharton, of every poorly-spelled happy hour chalkboard in Greenwich Village — and though the legendary set of graphemes has lost a little edge and a lot of grime what with all the crazy texting the kids do today, it is still creative fodder for countless contemporary writers, even the ones who have figured out that if you do graphic novels you have to write like 75% less.
