+ 337 What this country needs is a great poem. John Brownís Body was a step in the right direction. Iíve read it once, and Iím reading it again. But itís too long to do what I mean. You canít thrill people in 300 pages... The limit is about 300 words. Kiplingís ďRecessionalĒ really did something to England when it was published. It helped them through a bad time. Let me know if you find any great poems lying around. Herbert Hoover

+ 267 Every time, in the night, Iím thinking about your smile, Everything will be alright, If you will ever be mine? Miriam Leiva

+ 282 Hi. Iím Spider Jerusalem. I smoke. I take drugs. I drink. I wash every six weeks. I masturbate constantly and fling my steaming poison semen down from my window into your hair and food. Iím a rich and respected columnist for a major metropolitan newspaper. I live with two beautiful women in the cityís most expensive and select community. Being a bastard works. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 4: The New Scum

+ 301 It goes without saying that in order for me to buy a teapot at the Oneida, Ltd., outlet store at the Sherrill Shopping Plaza, the second coming of Jesus Christ had to have taken place in the year 70 A.D. To the Oneida Community, 70 A.D., the year the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, marks the beginning of the New Jerusalem. Which means weíve all been living in heaven on earth for nearly two thousand years. Everyone knows there is no marriage in heaven (though one suspects thereís no shortage of it in hell). So, the Oneidans said, weíre here in heaven, already saved and perfect in the eyes of God, so letís move upstate and sleep around. (Iím paraphrasing.) Sarah Vowell, Assassination Vacation

women of Jerusalem,
dark like the tents of Kedar,
like the curtains of Solomon.
