BLATANT GUSH OF PRAISE FOLLOWS

If you're like me, you're probably a little weary of reading a lot of erudite, scrupulously factual essays written by self-important pseudo-intellectuals. You know, like the Style section of People magazine.

Anyway, I stumbled across a website which is my new "first read of the day" - www.lileks.com - James Lileks is well known to citizens of the twin cities since his "day job" is as a columnist for the Star Tribune. His column appears three times a week, both in print and on-line. But his blog is updated daily and is genuinely funny. Sometimes he gets serious, but his writing is mostly about finding the humor in the perverse, ironic, twisted stuff that we all encounter every day.

When you open his home page, click on "Today's Bleats" but also surf around to his other stored nuggets. I especially like "Scribble", a collection of previously-written ariticles.
