  1. they smell money. Dick and Jane illustrations are like being made into greeting cards and shirts now. Clearly an instructive children’s book is completely in contradiction with the original artist’s vision.
    Germans have decided to create a Truman Show-like Perpetual Surveillance Village in which people will live for decades on a reality show.

  2. hmmm. on my mac (in both IE and Safari), my comments come out as ???? and mobius1ski’s (assuming they’re also in yiddish) come out as accented vowels. any geeks out there who can fix it?
