Is this missing a link to the essay, or is it just because I’m viewing it at http://boingboing.net/blog? The new formatting changes have me confused.


Is there any way to see the post and the comments on the same page?

The next time I hear someone say “Well, if they didn’t do the crime, they wouldn’t do the time”. . .

TNC is consistently great… I can’t wait to see him live and in person next month!!! I need to fit in reading his new book before then… good thing he’s a great writer and it’s a rather short book.

Also, SPIVAK IS IN TOWN TUESDAY!!! Holy shit! And I think in october, Cleese and Idol are going to be in town, too!
