"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

Five Dollar Friday

Explanation of Five Dollar Friday here. Follow who else is giving on twitter.

In the first repeat $5 Friday, five dollars goes today to Robert Parry's Consortium News. They badly need to raise money, and I strongly encourage you to donate as well.

Both Robert Parry and Ray McGovern spoke recently at the National Press Club about their careers and the price they've paid for telling the truth. I don't think there's any video, but you can check out a great summary here.

Robert Parry is the very best, the worthy successor of George Seldes and I.F. Stone, and everybody who can spare any money couldn't do much more for truth and justice than by giving it to him.

I've given money to consortium news in the past, and never regretted it.
