Such a fan of this guy’s work

The big rule that I was taught in minimalism is that you have got 7-10 minutes to read your story, and in that 7-10 minutes you have got to make people laugh—that’s most important.

You have got to make them feel something, some sympathetic physical reaction. Disease does that, illness does that, violence does that, sex does that.

And third, and most important is you have got to break their heart at the end. When they’re laughing the hardest or when they are feeling the sickest, you have got to break their heart. It’s talking about the things we cannot talk about that is so incredibly powerful. It gives people freedom not just to talk about those, but to laugh about those things. And that, my god, we don’t need anything beyond that.

There’s totally a joke to be made here about “gross spread.”

I mostly agree, but the argument is more complicated than this.

Interesting, and certainly complicated. I’m curious to learn more, though.

It really irked me that so many articles left out this kind of information. Foxconn employee daily salary sounds terrible to us, but the average cost of living is necessary to understand the full picture. I don’t think “buying Apple” is a solution of any sort, but the rest of the information definitely fleshes out the picture.

Let’s marvel at the fact that Newsweek has a Pinterest board devoted to Rick Santorum’s sweater vests. “Sleeves slow him down.”
And this is why Newsweek wins at the internet.


Aw, shucks.
