Roger Ebert, at his web site, has a strong rebuttal to Rosenbaum's tut-tutting of Bergman.

The Barthelme news is maybe the best thing I've ever read on your blog, Ed.

Ed -- the reason I keep bringing it up is that I want you on my bandwagon! I'm not going to rest until that happens.

You should check out the magazine Adbusters. Great cutting-edge (if polemical) content, no advertising. Actually anti-advertising, as the title suggests.

I like how The Believer puts their TOC on the back cover. But a small word in defense of all those ads - they do indicate a good pay-per-word rate, which is hard to come by for freelancers.

I'm really upset about the Patriot Act vote - I even know one of the people who voted for it personally. She was a prosecutor, but still. :-p WTF? She's getting a letter. I bought a copy of Vogue out of boredom on a weekend roadtrip, and counted the pages it took me to get to the TOC: 52! And the rest of the TOC didn't follow on the next page, I had to hunt 12 more pages in to get the second part. Damn! I mean really - they can put all those stupid ads in there, but why can't they move the TOC where we can find it? Perhaps that's why they put the stupid page numbers on the cover - because nobody can find the TOC!

The James Wood move seems meaningless to me. He probably appeared half as many times in The New Yorker each year as he did in TNR.
