burn baby, burn

When I was in 9th grade civics class, we used to pour rubber cement on the floor and light it on fire. You could light a whole mess of it ablaze without the teacher noticing because of the near-invisible blue flame.

I just finshed listening to
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book) : A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction
in the mp3 format. It made me want to go back to civics class and play school-supply pyrotechnician. It also made me want to teach high school civics and assign this book and the classroom activites to the the little brats.

I was almost scared to read this book, on the off chance that it tasted a bit too much like liberal shrieking/bush-bashing and forever ruined my intrepid opinion of the great Daily Show and its host, but don't worry, the satire is pure and unadulterated and whine-free.

For an optimal readin experience i suggest a six pack of O'Douls and a perch high above your local collegetown/hippie-neighborhood. The fires and riots come Nov. 3rd will make an excellent back drop and light source by which to read this great book.

God Bless America!
