Daddy, the man with a tire on hos head is here to see you!


I don't care if he says "Salman Rushdie is next!" I wanna negotiate!

john cox:


I saw that on The Onion and just fell out.


He called me an 'infidel'!

Dr. Bob:

I have to confess that I too never completely read Catcher even though it was assigned in high school literature.


"He called Obama a wimp!"



I just "Googled" your "headline" & that's what popped up.

Ironic, huh?


I'd written a long screed against gubmint skrools as to why I didn't read Catcher in high skrool, but I stowed it away. I finally read Catcher after I watched Conspiracy Theory--several years after it had been in theaters.

IMHO, it's a testament to the work that Salinger was 31 when it was published, yet it resonates most deeply with 13 & 14 year-olds & predominantly Leftist teachers.

FWIW, I'm just riffin'. It isn't a horrible book--but I'm not so sure it belongs on any "Top 100 novels of all time" list--but then again, most of those lists are so subjective they're meaningless.


Can we keep him, daddy? Huh? Can we?! Please!?

Ed B:

I said I wanted an "iMac" not an "iMam"!

Dr. Bob:

Terwiliger - I trust your judgement that "Catcher" is not worth going up upstairs in my frozen attic and looking through the ten banker's boxes of paperbacks to find it.

Somewhere up there is a copy of "1984" that I've wanted to read in deference to our elected (mis)leader.


You haven't read 1984? Of fiction, dystopian novels are probably my favorite genre. If there's a used bookstore where you live, see if you can pick up a copy of We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. I incidentally picked it up while sifting through a small pile of books a local dealer put on sale when a water line in his shop broke & he had to throw a number of books on to the sidewalk to keep them from getting damaged--he couldn't get them back in the store for several days, so he had a sidewalk sale. Both Orwell & Ayn Rand draw from that book (which is considered by a lot of critics to be the "original" dystopian novel--although I see some elements of dystopian satire in Thomas Moore's Utopia).

For lighter reading along the same lines, there are couple of good short stories you ought to be able to find on the "Interwebs"--"The New Utopia" by Jerome K. Jerome, & "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut.

You have to get up in that attic & dig out 1984. If you come across Catcher, again--it isn't horrible--but I think Salinger stuck some salacious stuff in it for shock value (& publicity) that hold it back from being as good as it could have been (although by today's standards, it's hardly shocking anymore).

This is good info! Where else can if ind out more?? Who runs this joint too? Keep up the good work :)

If you are designer bags manufacturer, buy wholesale directly, it eliminates the step of having to go into a store, and so save money. The reason, of course, manufacturers and wholesalers do not need any additional office or offices are required to run a chain of stores.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.
