I finished reading Stupid White Men, finally! I had many interruptions (more on this later.) I was browsing through recent reviews of the book, and came across a particularly harsh one: One Moore Stupid White Man, and it counter-claims that many of Moore’s resources and footnotes are factually incorrect. The author seems to take particular issue with Moore’s claims against Clinton, though in his book, Moore pulls no punches with Bush II either.

I think the book is selling well right now because there is a thirst for non-aligned thinking, if you will. People want to know the other side of the story, whether it be about the last election or about the current war against terrorism. Today’s Boondocks says it nicely.

As for the interruptions, they include mostly short stories by T.C. Boyle and Ellen Gilchrist. And the news, of course.
