"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

Some Things

I'm finishing several projects, so my appearances here have been and will continue to be light for a while. But here are some worthwhile things elsewhere:

1. Paul Krugman's review of The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know About America's Economic Future by Laurence J. Kotlikoff and Scott Burns.

2. Ross Gelbspan, longtime global warming gadfly, has written an appeal to Americans to "join a people's campaign to ratify the Kyoto Protocol." In other words, Americans should try to diminish our government's intransigence by directly endorsing the Kyoto Protocol as individuals. The petition, which I just signed, is here. (Thanks to mk for the links.)

3. If you enjoy online fights, visit Dennis Perrin and join the fray.

4. You should definitely watch this short film.

(While irrelevant to the movie, what was perhaps the most hideously embarrassing event of my life involved one of the actresses who appears in it. Please do not ask. You will not receive an answer.)

I didn't find that short film interesting or entertaining at all.

Dear Ms. Personette (if that really IS your name),

I've seen through your veil of deception. As good as you are at stabbing, even stabbing now, my double-stab stabbing will stab you more.

Oh mr. schwarz, how foolish you are. I live behind a wall of triple-stab protected concrete.
