  •  you don't love *your* reading list? (17+ / 0-)

    do you not read works of literature and analyze and appreciate them?  it's not like he's pulling some obscure-ass, überesoteric, chinese lesbian priest's   1373AD tome out for us to read; that was all fairly mainstream, save possibly the fiction.

    and i'm sorry you don't love words, but i do.  passionately.  they're quite beautiful and heaps of fun; some are so exquisitely precise in their meanings as to be positively sublime.
     
    in any event, isn't this whole website about exposure to things one might not otherwise encounter?

      On its good days, and to those who are willing to dig to find it, yes. But dKos is a lot of things to a lot of different people-- if you want the empty calories and  sugar-rush of the OMG LOOK WHAT BUSH DID NOW Twinkie diaries, we have that; if you want something with a more subtle and complex flavor, we have that too, and lots in between.

      That's what keeps me coming back here: the sum of what's posted defies easy categorization and is all over the place on any given day... just like real democracy.
