"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

Worthy Cause

One of the first quasi-blogs I ever read regularly was Cursor. Then when I started this site, Cursor was extremely generous is sending people this way.

Now Cursor needs to raise funds to keep going and ramp up its sister site, Media Transparency. Media Transparency does something no one else does: track the right wing's think tank-academia-media money machine in a systematic way. Here's an endorsement from Eric Alterman:

It deserve's recognition for public service and the widest possible audience...Media Transparency is the essential tool for tracking this movement.

And for an example of Media Transparency's work, see this piece on AEI and its push for war with Iran.

So check them out, and if you can afford it, send them some bucks.

Cursor and Media Transparency are out of Spot's hometown. He echoes everything you say; Media Transparency is, as you say, unique.

And not to put too fine a point one it, Spot wears his "Cursor" t-shirt (that he got for a contribution) when he takes bike rides around the city lakes.
