"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Classic. I love the way O'Rourke's able to put down a bad book in just a few words: "Don't read it. I didn't." Or "I didn't have to go past the title of 'Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them' to know that it was going to be bad. But..." Or this review. I also love: Ah, the bands, Woodstock did have all that wonderful music--Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan (not there), Joni Mitchell (also not there but wrote "We've Got to Get Ourselves Back to the Garden" after she heard about it later), Melanie (there but didn't write "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)" until someone told her she'd been there).
