2006: The Year in Horrorscopes

Conspicuous Consumption of a Mad Activist

Dear Panasonic Corporation, I have in my possession one of your fine DVD players, model no. DMR-ES40VS.

Street Life of a Mad Activist

Hey, lady. You got a problem with my hat? I mean, look. I was just walking down Fort Washington Avenue, minding my own business on my way to the A Train, and you — an ordinary, middle-aged white lady in a blue plaid housedress — stop to glare at my hat. How friendly is that? […]
