    Ask Tamburlaine: Burning Korans Is a Bad Idea

    Who on Earth is crazy enough to burn the Koran? Until two weeks ago, my answer has always been "raging lunatics in Elizabethan drama." You know, stage characters from the age of Shakespeare, the kind of people who are prone to cutting off their own hands, biting off their tongues and spitting them on the stage, or baking their enemies in pies and serving them for dinner. The people who make Hamlet seem well-adjusted. Certainly, I didn't think of it as the kind of thing real people did.

    As Summer Fades

    Summer has turned quickly into fall,
    The air much colder,
    The sea air so sweet,
    Leaves falling from the trees,
    Like ten  thousand passions.
    ...Where you and I will always meet.

    Bruce Springsteen didn’t write “Born in the U.S.A.” to protest Islamic centers - try reading the lyrics

    Over at Alan Colmes Liberaland, I was reading about protests near the Islamic Center two blocks away from Ground Zero, when this struck me:

    Opponents chanted “No mosque, no way!” and carried signs reading, “9-11-01: Never Forget,” as Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” blared over loudspeakers.

    If Bill Cosby would just remember that he made “Leonard Part 6,” maybe he’d rethink his stance on living.

    America by Heart: Reflections: The PreBook

    It was going to be a long day, the day she sat down to write her book. She was positive she could get through this, and it wouldn't take long. She was well known because of her mastery of Facebook, Twitter, and the Big Scam. *More on that later* So she had a seat at her very beautiful desk. This was a desk she purchased from a Real Housewife, and boy was it beautiful. because Teresa Guidice had excellent taste.

    Bohemian Rhapsodist: Tuli Kupferberg, 1923-2010

    Who the Fug? Yeah, that's the guy.

    Some of you (probably most of you) are too young to recognize the name, but The Fugs were a seminal influence on music in the mid to late '60s. Sort of a Mothers of Invention without the musicality; a Velvet Underground without the polish. Protopunk, maybe ur-punk. The name derives from Norman Mailer's corruption of the word fuck in The Naked and the Dead.
