Long-Time Reader Who No Longer Cares

Anyone else remember when this blog was funny?

J. Lupton

I beg to differ: I've spent the evening laughing, unable to stop picturing "tidy bulwarks against the possibility of suck" and the forces aligned against them.


Gotta agree with J. Lupton. This post is funny. The "tidy bulwarks" line is golden.

Kaplan's a really cool person. I'm already a little sick of the "American exceptionalism/imperialism" cottage industry in lit crit, but when it's done well, well, it's done well.
