Uber-blogger Ginger Mayerson of has just posted the latest issue of the Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society to her site.

Lots of interesting stuff, plus a John Bloom (aka Joe Bob Briggs) interview. (Did you know he was a Friend of Molly? Did you know he invented the term "breast fu"? I mean, what other street cred does one human need?)

Also, not to put too fine a point on it, yum.

But wait! There's more!

LS: Is John Ashcroft really Caligula?

JB: Are you confusing Caligula with Comstock? Caligula was a wild and crazy guy.

GM: If John Ashcroft could be Caligula for a day, what's the first thing he'd do?

JB: He'd say either "What are these three transvestite hookers doing in my bed?" or "Where's my sister?"

LS: Who will win the next presidential election? Who should win the next presidential election?

JB: I think it will be as close as the last one. George Bush is very politically sophisticated, and any problems he's having now - and he's having quite a few - will be addressed. He doesn't just stand idly by and let events overwhelm him. Most of the Democrats are pansies. The only one with balls is Hillary Clinton.

GM: What issues do you think the Democrats should run on in 2004? If they're not the same, what issues do you think they can they win on?

JB: I think the Democrats should run on the issue of being more charitable among ourselves, more forgiving in general, and more willing to be a part of the international community. I don't think they can win on this. They can win on making Bush look like a lunatic on the economy, and making him look like a loose-cannon cowboy overseas. You wouldn't think it would be that hard to defeat him. After all, when he was elected in 2000, this was a country at peace with plenty of money. Now it's a country constantly going to war with no money, continuing to spend more than it has.

In conclusion: Ginger, I'm saving a spot under my tree, just in case.

No really, you shouldn't have.

Don't let that stop you.

Looks like you're going to have to be careful who you send your money to if you want a tax break.

F'rinstance, you might want to check the morning papers before you send any money to Greenpeace, because the Bush administration is fighting in court to take their tax exempt status away.

Do not despair, though. Since the party in power supports private charitable spending, they're providing you with replacement opportunities - specifically the "charities" that will be paying for VIP perks for friends of Tom DeLay and Bill Frist at the Republican convention in New York.

You can't say they're not looking out for you.

Does larger type make the italics easier to read?

Bueller? Anybody?
