Quote of the Day


The Hunger Games

Imagine a totalitian dictatorship that uses Reality TV + Roman Colosseum style bloodgames + elements of Shirley Jackson's short story The Lottery to control the masses, and you have the basic conceits of Suzanne Collins' young adult novel  The Hunger Games, a book I started (and finished) last night.  I recommend as a co-read.  Read it with your child, and have a rousing discussion about civil liberties and the proper role of government.

Hey, this is off-topic; but I wanted to ask you a few questions about the IPod Touch, if you don't mind. Can you email me?
