Star*ucks

Incredibly poor choice of names on top of an even worse font, I just can’t help but think some ad-hack consumed with self-loathing is doing this, even if only subconsciously, in a cry for help…

A really refreshing interview with Sen. Joseph Biden done by some moderately brilliant dude whose alma mater I share (yes who cares, I know)…I remember hearing an NPR Press Club speech by Biden and thinking how intelligent, passionate, and persuasive he sounded as a public speaker (…want better word than persuasive….too late, can’t think, arrgh) my initial opinion changes not after reading this piece.

    J.D. Salinger, “Catcher in the Rye”

    • “Salinger is the real phony here.”
    • “I find it as pointless as the day i read it. You would be much better off reading a nice Grisham, actually…”
    the Ulysses one is also exquisite
