"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

Anna In America

Anna Ghonim is traveling to the US from Egypt with her children this summer. On the website Ihsan she has an enjoyable story about her younger son's concerns that, despite her claims, America may not really have mosques. She also wrote a recent post on the liberation of Auschwitz that's well worth reading.

Anna, which state(s) will you be visiting? I'm in Minnesota--if by any chance you're coming here we must get together!

I will be in Ohio visiting my sister (Cleveland - she's a violinist with the orchestra) and Oregon visiting my parents (Mom is in Portland and Dad is in the Siskiyou mountains) - thanks for the reference Jon :)
