Not that these folks actually merit a serious reply, but: should one of that cohort actually reach his "number," my guess is that the chances of him (always him) actually quitting are probably one divided by said number.
I would also suggest his wonderful autobiography Loitering with Intent.
I always thought he was rapping.
As aspirational spaces go, these have nothing on the trachea.
My new T-shirt is going to say "Richard Cohen thinks I'm avant-garde."
@quarterback how very generous of you! Yes clearly it's other people's fault you have the attention span of a may fly.
So.... for some reason I read this as David Lee Roth attended George Plimpton's funeral at St. John The Divine where he ran into Norman Mailer while they were mutually looking for the pisser. I imagined him in an all white tux, red Hawaiian shirt, dirty blonde locks, white top hat (or even better white captain's hat!) and matching cane.
Needless to say, I was sorely disappointed when I read the link, but I would not give up those 1.3 seconds for THE WORLD.

I was quite relieved that not a one of those goyishe abominations like cinnamon raisin and blueberry was included here.

I literally cannot say this in enough places today: Fuck every single person who supports declining the expansion of Medicaid, you horrific fucking monsters.

Are you actively looking to embarrass yourself on the Internet here? Jesus effing Christ. The president from 2001-2009 definitely didn't miss ANY OF THE TEE TIMES EVER and a global financial bubble and crash that happened on his watch (and, more precisely, Alan Greenspan's watch) is the reason why so many people are food insecure. Do you realize that people can't buy anything EXCEPT food with SNAP benefits? And that the food that you can purchase is limited, in a fair way, to food that people more or less should actually eat? So the people who are drawing those benefits actually REALLY need them, and badly enough such that it's probably easier for them to work and take home income if they have a real job opportunity. (Which they don't, because we have massive unemployment/underemployment! And we're not alone on Earth with that problem, so maybe you should STOP TRYING TO DENY IT EXISTS.) BTW I have not heard a goddamn thing about food stamp abuse, and if some people (a percentage none of these GOP fuckers can ever quantify, by the way!) are faking their poverty and pulling in a couple hundred dollars under-the-table to buy glossy sneakers while they live in public housing... great, maybe those people can do that for another hundred thousand years and we might approach the level of one year's worth of corporate welfare in the United States.
There is nothing but shame here. Go strangle some infants and get the bile out of your system, you upper middle class TAX VICTIM.
