As horrible as I think that cover is for Charlie, my guess was Lolita -- which would have been even worse. That young girl is waaaay too young to be Lolita.

This sexualization of young girls is horrifying, no matter what the book or event (Toddlers and Tiaras, I'm thinking.)

There are baby pigs at the Jefferson County Fair in Port Townsend. BABY. PIGS.

I assumed the weird language was a send up -- reading the Japanese English on the packaging, verbatim.

It is my favorite thing about this. I love Japanese English.

Day three is when I stopped, actually. But I rounded down to two.

Great article and great tribute.

Jul 10 bareboards commented on The Death of Aaron Swartz and Why Blacks Must Be More Sympathetic.
"The truth of the matter is that people who happen to have brown or black skin should be more sympathetic than white Americans to the kind shit that led to Swartz's death."

That is a complicated thought. To think that this thought comes across by the mere use of the word "black" is what the commenter was referring to.

Shorthand words that mean one thing to you do not mean the same thing to vast majority of your audience.

Say what you want to say. Build your argument. And maybe you did in your original article. But you already lost your audience by then.

No brag, just fact.

Said laconically.

I just hope this is a one-off joke and not the way it is going to continue. I'll get used to it, I'm sure, but right now, blerg.
