Entry: The Realist, Indeed Saturday, January 30, 2010

Worship him, for he is good.  And yes, I would freely give up any number of body parts to be him.  Except for balls - you need those to be Paul Krassner.  For clarification of this claim, please see The Realist Archive Project.  (Check this one out for a visit to an alien civilization known as the 1950s. Can you imagine how stressful it must have been for anyone alive in those times who was not completely nuts?)  See - the intertubes aren't all bad, after all.

Well said, and entirely true.

Write MOAR. I miss you.

Some of the coolest people throughout history were influencial pamphleteers. There is a different place in the digital noise now, but content is king.
