More daft puns than Daft Punk
@barnhouse I guess it's about Op-Ed writing as a kind of performance, where the writer plays a character. Paul Krugman's wife, for instance, is known to edit his columns to make them "less dry, less abstract, angrier."
Also David Brooks's columns all go like this: "Reasonable assumption, reasonable assumption, reasonable assumption, shockingly retrograde assumption, conservative conclusion that doesn't seem all that crazy compared with that last assumption, but is actually insane."
@cherrispryte Have you ever tried Tofutti Cuties? I love 'em and I'm not even lactose-intolerant. Ice cream they're not, but they stack up nicely against your average ice cream sandwich.
Yeah, please don't make us link up with Facebook. Disqus looks fine, I don't care about losing commenter numbers (obviously, since mine is so high), but can you keep the alternating thread colors? Makes it easier for those who have trouble following indents (me, I mean me, it's all about me).
@City_Dater Clicked through to satisfy my curiosity-- it's 18-gauge steel, and it's not the cheapest 18-gauge steel casket you can find on the Internet. Wonder what the funeral home markup would be on this beauty?
That is an astonishingly good price for a casket! Is it made of particleboard or something?
1) The Unbearable Lightness of Being
2) a collection of Irish Catholic mystical poetry
I read this book as a high school junior. I did not become a classics major because of this book. I did memorize the first few stanzas of The Divine Comedy in Italian and strongly considered applying to Bennington because of it.
I just wish the NYT would let me put my entire resume in their Op-Ed section, too.
