This makes me want to throw up. Check out #88. Yeah. It's really there.

Now I realize this is not a consensus of literary critics or scholars or intellectuals, but the fact remains that the everymen who were polled, in all seriousness, listed that book - an utter piece of no-talent tripe at best, a socially dangerous instrument of prescriptive propaganda at worst - as one of the best of all time.

I don't care if you liked this book, and I don't want to hear any of the defensive stock arguments about "entertainment" or whatever. I'm not going to go rounds with anyone about this stupid book anymore. Because if you seriously believe, in any context, that it deserves to be listed next to so many other examples of true literary epicness...well then we have nothing to say to each other.

In other rageworthy news, as I was getting onto the freeway to go to school this morning, there was a guy standing at the exit ramp with a ten foot banner displaying blown up pictures of aborted fetuses (the Planned Parenthood is right around the corner). I seriously wanted to get out of the car and punch him in the face.
