The Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries. (As defined by conservatives.)
  • You can get the humor in this page by looking at some of the harmful "honorable mentions" which almost made the list, such evil screeds as Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa, and Darwin's The Origin of Species.
  • I was really surprised to see that Hilary's It Takes a Village did not beat out Mein Kampf.
  • All kidding aside, I wish they would do the most harmful books of all-time. I would love to see what they include. Have they forgiven Galileo yet?

You can't really argue with the first three, but some of those other choices are just bizarre. They didn't even get the title right for Darwin! And Keynes, whose economic theories helped turn the US into the world's economic superpower?

I guess it all depends on how you define harmful.

Anyway, I always thought that the Communist Manifesto was a pretty unimpressive book. I find it hilarious that Marx managed to get everything almost completely wrong: everything he attributed to an ideal communist society ended up occuring in the US while his fears of what would happen in capitalism is exactly what happened in the Soviet Union. Irnoy, and not in an Alanis type way.

As I see it, the great flaw of Communism is that it is not a complete economic system. It simply ignores the reality of how and why wealth is created in the first place.

It would be perfectly OK to distribute wealth more fairly if it could be done without impairing the very mechanism by which wealth is created.

But all socialist theories ignore the possibility that a communist system might result in a reduction of the total amount of wealth available, and therefore that a more equitable distribution of less wealth may not really benefit anyone in the long term.

Socialism works fine, for example, in Norway, where they don't have to worry about generating wealth. They have a vast amount of wealth to spread around, a culture of integrity, and a very small population. Hard to see how socialism could do much harm.

Their economy is stagnant, but that doesn't matter because growth is unnecessary. They simply have enough for everyone, and nobody is stealing very much.

Tickled Pink - a peek in the closet, "blatantly or coded gay television characters".
  • OK, Paul Lynde and Dr Smith on Lost in Space, I'll buy those. But Mr Spock? A total daffodil. Jeannie the Genie? Obvious bull dyke. Batman? Gay as a caballero. Starsky and Hutch? Their wrists were so limp they could barely hold their guns.
  • What about Yancy Derringer (played by Sally Field's stepfather!). First of all, his name was Yancy and he always traveled with an inseparable male companion, a hunky Indian named Pahoo, who was played by an actor whose REAL first name was X. Finally, look at these lines from his theme song: "They say that Yancy Derringer had ruffles on his wrist, brocade and silver buckles, and iron in his fist."
  • What 'bout those two guys on Dragnet? Tell me those two didn't like to smoke the White Owl.
  • Five words: Davy Crockett and Georgie Russel.
  • There was also no mention of the incestuously gay Dukes of Hazzard.
  • And of course, the most obvious of all - Lee Marvin on M-Squad. Talk about flaming!

An in-house video meant to prepare San Francisco 49ers players for dealing with the media backfired on the NFL team Wednesday after it was leaked to the San Francisco Chronicle.
  • The 15-minute film, featuring racist jokes, lesbian soft-porn and topless blondes, features the team's public relations director, Kirk Reynolds, impersonating San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in the mayor's office and other city scenes.
  • Team owners Denise and John York on Wednesday called the video offensive, inexcusable and "absolutely contradictory to the ideals and values of the San Francisco 49ers'' unless it was kept a secret, in which case it was jolly kick-ass fun!
  • So when does it come out on DVD?

The final theatrical trailer from Yes
  • 'Yes' is the story of a passionate love affair between an American woman (Joan Allen) and a Middle-Eastern man (Simon Abkarian) in which they confront some of the greatest conflicts of our generation - religious, political and sexual. Sam Neill plays the betrayed and betraying politician husband and Shirley Henderson a philosophical cleaner who witnesses the trail of dirt and heartbreak the lovers leave behind them, as they embark on a journey that takes them from London and Belfast to Beirut and Havana."

The trailer from Julie Johnson
  • "Lili Taylor and Courtney Love team up to play two dissatisfied New Jersey housewives in the newest feature from director Bob Gosse. Taylor plays Julie, an 'American as apple pie' mom who harbors a secret obsession for theoretical physics and reads Scientific American voraciously. Although she never finished high school, she decides to make a break with her past and follow her dreams. Against the wishes of her husband, she convinces her best friend, Claire, to take a computer class with her and get their G.E.Ds. Spalding Gray plays an inspirational professor who nurtures her desire for change and discovers her genius. In the process, she and Claire, a steakhouse waitress, leave their husbands and move in together. It is not long before Julie confesses her long-held romantic feelings for Claire, who is at first quite upset but soon admits the feeling is mutual. As their relationship deepens, their growing alienation from their friends and neighbors begins to take its toll. With a fabulous cast, including Mischa Barton from 'The O.C.,' 'Julie Johnson' is a winning protrayal of what happens when the doors of personal discovery are opened."

The trailer for Chris Columbus's Rent
  • Based on Puccini's classic opera La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's revolutionary rock opera 'Rent' tells the story of a group of Bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent in the gritty background of New York's East Village. 'Measuring their lives in love,' these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, ilness and the AIDS epidemic. One of the longest running shows on Broadway, 'Rent' was the winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drame, the Obie Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk awards."

The trailer from The Talent Given Us
  • "Crossword puzzles, supermarket runs... Judy and Allen fill in the small moments of their commonplace marriage as best they can. When they run into two former teachers of their son Andrew, they learn of a job opportunity for him. Unfortunately, Andrew is distant in location and in family relations. Suddenly realizing she must embark on a quest to repair that, Judy takes Allen on a cross-country trip to see Andrew and work things out. After they rope in their two unmarried daughters, the family is forced to come together, for better or worse."
  • I know that doesn't sound all that good, but there is more to it. The unique "hook" of this film is that all of the principal characters are played by their real-life counterparts. The author wrote a (semi-fictional) story about his family and persuaded his relatives to play themselves!
