Another Pitch

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Subscribing to Salon.com is worth it.

Go there now, watch an ad, and get free access to the site (for a while).

No, I get no money from them if you sign up. I just think they have really good writing.

And having sat through my commercial, I offer the following quotes as your reward.

Newt Gingrich is living proof that you can acquire a reputation as a man of ideas merely by insisting with sufficient repetitiveness that you care deeply about ideas. (It helps to occasionally cite some semi-obscure author as a seminal influence. Actually understanding said author is unnecessary.)
-- Jonathan Chait
I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my telephone; my wish has come true because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone.
-- Bjarne Stroustrup
There are only two things in the world -- nothing and semantics.
-- Werner Erhard
Computers drop in value quicker than anything except milk.
-- Lincoln Spector

2- They are always so greasy - it comes from not smoking enough.
