Doug Savage v. Harlequins

As clever as Doug Savage is ("Night of the Unread"--hee), I take issue with his assertion that reading Harlequins is the same thing as being "unread."  While I don't personally read Harlequins (because I'll admit that they are just too freaking painful for someone who once had ambitions to be published), reading trashy romance novels is, in my humble opinion, ten times better than watching five hours of television a day if only because it stimulates the imagination (if you know what I mean) rather than completely smothering it the way tv does.

Also, for those of you who argue that Harlequins are the equivalent of porn for women, I would say that reading trashy romance novels is, in my humble opinion, a hundred times better than watching five hours of porn a day for very similar reasons.  (There's more to be said on this subject, but I'll wait until another day.)

Detail that and watch your visits skyrocket.

I know, I 'm waiting for corporate IT to drop into my office, Mission Impossible-style, to figure out what the hell I'm doing writing this at work. That was part of the reason I didn't go into it any further.

Worth it.

Strangely enough, that didn't up my hits over the weekend. I did have a couple of searches for "pipeclayed nipples," but that's just Cormac McCarthy being Cormac McCarthy.
