"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

Less A Web Site, More A Support Group

I wonder if there's some way I can change the software here so my blizzard of John Ralston Saul references will only appear to people who've opted-in. Alternatively, I could go with the flow and transform the site wholly into a support group for John Ralston Saul obsessives and the people who love us.


1. Peter of Peknet has discovered an article in the Ottawa Citizen about Saul visiting Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.

2. Jon Husband, a Doubter's Companion fan and self-admitted Canadian, recommends the video of a John Ralston Saul speech called "In Defense of Public Education."

On the strength of your raving, I picked up _Voltaire's Bastards_ at a used bookstore here in Vancouver yesterday. I'm only about 50 pages in, but it's looking like a winner so far. Thanks for the tip.

Could you? Could you please limit the flow to those who have opted in? I would hate to have a brilliant site spoiled by a single inexplicable vice.
