I never read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Too busy reading other, boring books.
Even if To Kill A Mockingbird doesn't have the prestigious Cipherpink Seal of Approval, it certainly deserves a place on a library shelf instead of Steel or Price. Then again as Spookz said, it could have been checked out.
Running for the thrill of it
As I watched the opening ceremony (having to go bed in a sec so recording the rest), two things hit me.
1. Just like the Jubilee and the Royal Wedding, I convinced myself that I wouldn't give a **** about the Olympics, but as I watched the opening ceremony, I was truly moved. **** yeah. Even if a load of it was socialist bull.
2. Looking at the countries from the Middle East, who is it that has the largest percentage/number of women athletes in comparison to their neighbours? Israel. Free, democratic, non islamic fascist Israel. It's so indicative of how truly corrupt much of our society is that we are so quick to condemn such a great, isolated nation surrounded by countries that barely, if at all, recognise their right to existence.

yeah, i know.
But really, it's one of the first books I think of when someone says "Pulitzer Prize", along with Grapes of Wrath, Gone With the Wind, The Color Purple... I'm sure I'm not alone in that. My mind doesn't immediately jump to Early Autumn or The Fixer, but they won the award as well.
Except Catcher in the Rye. You're not down with Catcher, you're not down with me. That's Great Gatsby territory. You just have to separate the art from the generations of shitty people who have used it as their shitty handbook.
I'm so glad that I pick up on canada channels from across the border and I'm not stuck with NBC's shitty coverage of the Olympics...
I feel dumb for asking this, but did anyone else feel like crying when the torch came into the Olympic stadium? I know I came close to. o.o
I'm with you on that one Eternal. Skyrim was more interesting.
Truth be told, the only part I liked about the opening ceremony was the fireworks and the part with the countries marching with their flags. :P
Holy ****! I spider just swung down at me while I was rolling. Caught me off guard and now I'm really jumpy. May not sleep tonight now.
