I’m on the Wall for being at the Mall

open.salon.com — The Governments' Digital Pictures of Protesters is not a Pretty Picture for Democracy I should be in court this week in Raleigh, North Carolina. Well, I am in a way, even though I'm writing this from Oakland, California. No, this isn't science fiction or schizophrenia. It's all about a sociogram.

Patton Oswalt battles his demons (and zombies)

salon.com — You know Patton Oswalt. As I prepared to talk to the comedian about his terrific, Gen X-era cultural memoir " Zombie, Spaceship, Wasteland," nearly everyone I mentioned him to had an immediate, very specific response. They were, in order: "I loved 'Big Fan.' " "I wish 'Comedians of Comedy' would come back."

The Man Who Loves To Hate

motherjones.com — The Rev. Fred Phelps stands out from a block away. Sixty-nine years old, Phelps is tall and reedy; his white hair billows out from under a cowboy hat. Like a latter-day Moses, he holds in each hand bright yellow-and-orange posters: "Baptist 666 Fags" and "Matt in Hell."

As "The Simpsons" Creator Cheats Death, He Travels The Globe Saving Animals

thedodo.com — Sam Simon is typically identified as "co-creator of 'The Simpsons,'" which is true, and people often like to go further, proclaiming him the real heart of the series, even though he left it long ago, in 1993.

About The Dodo

thedodo.com — We're witnessing a profound shift in the way people regard animals. They matter more to us now. We think of them less as objects at our disposal, as science increasingly reveals them to be intelligent, emotional, social beings that are not as different from us as we used to think they were.
