For some reason the links post took me forever today

  1. Here’s a good question. Why didn’t they have female crash test dummies all along? It reminds me of the way they test drugs only on men, still.
  2. CBC presents a top ten of literary hoaxes; Slate has good articles on both the Frey/Leroy phenomena and Frey’s flunked rehab personality and why it matters.
  3. One of the few moments in my entertainment journalism/internet career that mattered and moved me was an interview I did with Helen Prejean at the time that Dead Man Walking was being released as a film. The Guardian has a good piece about her online right now.
  4. Evidence that diabetes or metabolic syndrome might be reversed by a relatively short dietary course is interesting. Note the knee-jerk reply from the diabetes association. They’re so focused on keeping patients behaviorally in line that they have really become dogmatic about the impossibility of a cure. It’s pretty sad.
  5. If you liked Gridiron Cuvée, you’ll love JARHEAD RED.
  6. This cookbook is entirely MADE OF MEAT.

  1. I come across cookbooks like that all the time at the thrifts. I have no idea how someone could buy a book that contains photos like this and ever want to eat again!
    Maybe they’re actually anorexic diet aids.

  2. Dude. What’s up with bad fiction being revealed as bad fiction? I really don’t get all the press that these two cats Frey and LeRoy are getting. They wrote books. The books got famous. Based on the excerpts I read of Frey’s book, he has a hard time with distinguishing proper nouns.
    What I don’t understand is why people are upset about this. It’s like finding out reality television has a producer.
