This is great reading - the 50 most loathsome people of 2006. I'm particularly fond of no. 29...

I kind of like.... 

16. You

Charges: Your whole life has been a pitiful exercise in rote mimicry, a meek subjugation of individuality in exchange for herd approval. Your delusions of "common sense" wisdom stem from an unwillingness to seek information and an inability to critically analyze it. You never hesitate to offer strong opinions on subjects you don’t know a damn thing about. You’re willing to believe anything a guy in a suit says on TV, as long as it doesn’t hint at your culpability in the negligent homicide of your country and planet or otherwise cloud your streak-free conscience. You’re more worried about friction on the "Desperate Housewives" set than the lack of health coverage at your tedious, soul-destroying job. You have no idea what is going on in the world, and you’re fine with that. You are why democracy doesn’t work.

Exhibit A: You’re Time magazine’s person of the year. So was Hitler.

Sentence: More of the same.

Yeah 29 is hilarious.  Also 26 (Ann Coulter) had my laughing out loud.  Quite a good read.  Thanks for the link, Swerb.

Swerbie - Did you see Fast Food Nation yet?  I know you read the book and enjoyed it.  The movie is out here, but the reviews I've seen were MEH.  With limited funds and time to see it, does it warrant a viewing???  I liked the book as well and it is a topic near and dear to my heart.

I haven't seen "Fast Food Nation" yet. It played here for about two weeks, and I didn't get the chance to review it, so... I'm no help at all. Laughing
