"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

Recent Tomdispatch

Tomdispatch really is an fantastic resource. Every single piece it runs is worth reading—serious and in-depth, with information you won't find in such detail anywhere else. I'd say it's comparable in quality and importance to the New York Review of Books during Vietnam.


Michael Schwartz: "Surge and Destroy: The Brutality Escalates in Iraq"

Karen Greenberg: "Guantanamo is not a Prison: 11 Ways to Report on Gitmo without Upsetting the Pentagon"

Tom Engelhardt: "Hostages to Policy: What We Know About Waste and War in Iraq"

David Swanson: "Can Congress End the War? Democratic Leaders May Prefer to Claim They Tried But Failed"

(Given this effusive praise, I should mention that I've written for Tomdispatch once, and hope to again in the future.)
