Who knows why things resonate with people? Rosebud, madeleines, Gibran, Wacky Packs (which seem to have tonal qualities that Garbage Pail Kids, even with the massively-unsuccessful movie, do not), I could go on like this. It's inexplicable. Take this Best Week Ever
blog entry about that Gotti-scion reality show, for example, which is provoking more responses than the one about that jailbait starlet--you know the one I mean. More, even, than the one where I got in an argument about Reagan.
Also, here's some Metafilter discussion
about a Washington Post
story about Jessica Cutler, that Senate staffer/prostitute who kept a weblog about her escapades before being loudly outed by Wonkette
(who discusses the Post story here
). Is that sentence really incoherent?
