  1. Cell? How does it do it? Send people a retardedly high bill and people kill themselves? Or is it more like “The Ring” or something like that?

  2. I’m surprised none of my book-loving friends commented on the “too many books” statement, because there’s no such thing! I spent too much money on books, is what I meant. It was an impulse buy.

  3. More BOOKs! You have too many books go buy something useful like chrystal meth or something…Books….sheesh….

    hey am reading an excellent account of the battle of stalingrad, (trevor beevor) a couple months ago was loaned freakanomics….was great, entertaining…

  4. > Was there ever a bigger hack than Stephen King?

    Yes: Nora Roberts, Krentz, some may say Crichton…

  5. Harlan Ellison has been called a hack by more than a few former-academic associates of mine. As well as Danielle Steele, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe.

    The OED defines a hack as “a person hired to do esp. dull or routine work, a drudge; esp. a writer of poor or averager quality literary or (esp.) journalistic work; a writer or a journalist who will take on any available work.”

    According to the last part of that definition, Shakespeare was a hack.
