There was something so pleasant about that phase

Yahoo!

Quote of the Day

"Here Comes The Judge!" Back in 1993, my company Milestone Media had just launched its new line of comic books. From our cramped, dingy and yet incredibly high-rent Manhattan offices, we labored to turn out four comics a month. But it wasn't all hard… more »

I played it off and act like I already knew

"Is This the Secret Coke Recipe?" A bunch of neat revelations, there. An investigation into the formula for Coca-Cola, the herbs and spices in Kentucky Fried Chicken, and the recipes for Mrs. Fields cookies and Twinkies? That's a lot of hard work.… more »

Quote of the Day

"Cult-favorite XOMBI Rises From DC for New DC Series": David Kim is Korean-American, but that’s not what his purpose is, or what defines him as a character. My goal is to write a character that people like and get involved with, not to fill a quota… more »

People tryin' to sue me

"President Carter named in $5 million lawsuit over his 'Palestine' book." The first thing that occurs to me is who's doing this? A pro-Israeli group, or hard core right-wingers? The latter can't be stupid enough to want to set a precedent in a case… more »

Quote of the Day

"Quote of the Day" doesn't quite cut it. It's more like "OMFG what planet am I on?". Check out this excerpt from Mark Thiessen's book: Obama claims that by eliminating enhanced interrogations and closing Guantanamo, he is actually making America… more »

They read books to pass the time

Ezra Klein, Matthew Yglesias, Ta-Nehisi Coates and a bunch of other liberal bloggers have compiled a top 10 list of books that influenced their thinking. Every single one of those books looks boring as hell. more »

These are the tales that I tell so well

Yglesias's quote from Alan Wolfe's review of Intellectuals and Society (previously) was well worth reading, but I think there's a more enlightening one to be found: The more interesting question is how Sowell managed the task of actually writing the… more »

I'm a piece of $#!ϯ, it ain't hard to f'n tell

I've thoroughly enjoyed Barbara Ehrenreich's books, and I expect to enjoy the next one too, even though TIME's preview/excerpt of it looks to be a major change of pace: [T]he question, before you whip out your credit card or start reciting your… more »

The Lie-Bury

I have to laugh at Michelle Malkin's bitching about her and her ilk not getting enough media attention for their books. Conservatives claim the public loves their books, when in reality they practically have to give them away. Yes, it's just a… more »
