Is there any way you'll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!

, I've been through it 6 times and there was aotulbsely nothing about it which was humiliating and I never once felt as if I were being groped or molested. Anyway, low radiation scanners are being rapidly introduced. They give 1/40th of a chest xray's worth of radiation. Presumably, you also object to the revealing nature of these scans. If this freaks you out so much, then just don't fly. Don't degrade my safety for the sake of whatever it is about which you have such a sense of moral outrage.With respect to drunk driving, I'd be very much in favor of a system in which you had to blow into a tube in order to start your car. This is simple and sensible technology. Just as important, I'd be in favor of a ban of all mobile phone usage while driving, including hands free. Studies show that this is every bit as dangerous as driving under the influence. The federal government has, indeed, protected me from a lot of harm. When I grew up, seat belts weren't mandatory and I used to take naps on the ledge over and behind the back seat of our car and adults used to smoke while driving me around in it. I swam across the Ohio River when I was a teenager, and it was filthy. Today, it's much better. Los Angeles air was brown in the 1970s and mostly blue today. Airplanes were regularly hijacked in the 1970s but haven't been hijacked since 9/11. Automobiles are much safer today than in the past, owing to lots of things, but owing partly to government regulations, crash test data, etc. The FDA does a darn good job of keeping both pharmaceuticals and food supply safe. Department of Transportation rules regarding long haul truck operation make the highways safer. South Carolina has more than double the than California and Texas has a 35% higher fatality rate than California. Government got rid of smoking on airplanes and most public places. I know what's in the food I buy, because it says so right on the labels. And on and on.Government does a spectacularly good job of protecting the health and safety of its citizens.- Larry Weisenthal/Huntington Beach, CAReply

Readings

  • Panda PowerPoint!
    I guess I don't mind being "the entertainment" when it's at Mark Allen's second annual Holiday Fry-B-Que. Presented: preliminary findings from my ongoing research into the most charismatic megafauna of all: Giant Pandas.
  • McSweeny's Presents: The World, Explained | Dec 9, 2006
    For those who missed it, there will be more. World, Explained is going strong! Money was raised, laughs were had, and for those paying attention, small amounts of useful information about things like the aurora borealis were transmitted. Plus: Michael Cera = lovably funny. And Nick Diamonds' renditions of Dumb Dog and Hanging Tough are still in my head. As is that horribly catchy Fresh Step jam.
  • Jest Fest at Skylight Books
    Somehow I wound up hosting the 10th anniversary jubilee for Infinite Jest at Skylight Books. Because who doesn't love a jubilee, right? Despite being delirious with Hepatitis A (that's the mild, non-lethal kind; I'm not at risk for Hep B since I always go the needle share and choose clean-looking prostitutes), I managed to not mis-pronounce anyone's name and make an erudite joke and poke gentle fun at Michael Silverblatt.
  • McSweeny's Presents: The World, Explained | June 10, 2006
    Number Three! Last one was sold out so we moved to a slightly larger theater. Andy Richter hosted, and his opening exegesis of CSI: Miami warmed the people up right. Evany Thomas presented her very scientific findings on the Secret Language of Sleep; Starlee Kine bared her neuroses to the world (or at least the 300 people in the audience); Josh Davis showed video of his 135-lb self sumo wrestling a 550-lb opera singer from San Bernardino; and Davy Rothbart closed it out with some Found Magazine magic. Grant Lee Phillips, Sam Shelton and Zooey Deschanel provided the music punctuation! I can still hear their rendition of We Are the Champions.
  • McSweeny's Presents: The World, Explained | Feb 11, 2006
    The second in our series of precision comedy and fact-based entertainment extravaganzas benefiting 826LA. Patton Oswalt was kind enough to host, and Jon Brion joined in on the piano and guitar as thematic accompaniment. Presenters included: David Rees, Michael Colton, John Hodgman (along with his hirsuit troubadour, Jonathan Coulton), and me. Plus: a fashion show of exciting multi-user garmentry.
  • Little Gray Book Lecture at Galapagos
    How to Observe President's Day. Jonathan Coulton's technical wizardry has made this entire show available online. The summary from PRX: Sarah Vowell, John Hodgman and Joshuah Bearman on Presidents' Day, along with a fifteen-piece marching band and a new song about all forty-three presidents. My contribution? Yes, from Yeti Researcher. Again. Actually that was the first one. So I have only five stories!
  • Little Gray Book Lecture 25 at Galapagos
    The Animals: Are They Our Enemies? In the case of my presentation about the giant gerbils of Xinjiang, the answer is yes.
  • July 25: TJ to LA -- A Night McSweeney's Readings
    I was honored to be part of a strange triptych along with Salvador Plascencia and Josh Kun. Sponsored, somehow, by La Ciudad magazine, we all packed into Beyond Baroque with no air conditions. 150 people showed at 7 o'clock on a Friday evening, which we took as a good sign of something. Sal held up and anxiously discussed drawings from his novel, Josh delivered an essay on the Dr. Moreau of Tijuana, and my shtick (again) was Pac Man and metaphysics, this time with fun slides.
  • October 8th: Skylight Books w/Stephen Elliott
    Fun times were had by all. Someone in the audience actually mistook me for an expert on the psychology human character. We ate shrimp cocktail and drank cheap wine and laughed at Bush and celebrated the certainty of right besting wrong in American democracy. A lot of good that did.
  • October 9th: MoveOn Fundraiser in Los Angeles
    See above.
