"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Thanks to Atrios, This Modern World, Majority Report on Air America and everyone else for paying attention to this important story. If everyone pulls together it should have some impact, although given Hersh's statement I can't help but be concerned with the effect it might have on the lieutenant who reported it.

If new visitors would like a break from grim news, you might enjoy these humor pieces by my friend Michael Gerber and myself:
