I haven't featured a "snark for today" post in a while.
James Lileks Screedblog post yesterday is just toooo inspiring to neglect, though... hop on over and spike his bandwidth usage. Here's a sample:
I never "got into" Vonnegut, or "dug" his work like my "buds," several of whom pronounced his work as "intense," so I am not particularly bothered to find he applauds suicide bombers, and thinks they experience "an amazing high." In the literal sense, perhaps; it's possible that skull fragments may reach the third floor before they carom off a balcony and patter back to earth.
"...it's possible that skull fragments may reach the third floor before they carom off a balcony and patter back to earth..."
Well, since I share his view of Vonnegut (James Joyce Lite, as I was wont to label him in my long ago college days), this has me grinning already. And that's just his leadoff pitch.
Pure gold. Hit it now.
