Recommended Reading

I've long thought that New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman is a self-possessed jackass whose clueless cheerleading for the Iraq mess was as ideological as it was idiotic, so when I heard that his latest book was a pro-environmental broadside against consumerism, I damn near jumped out of my skin at the sheer WTF-ness of it all. Clearly, Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi had much the same reaction I did, and the shellacking he gives Friedman and his tome is a thing to behold.
