Brain Radio

There are some people to whose brains I’d like to fashion some sort of microphone so I could listen to their thoughts. I’d have a special ipod-like device to tune one of them in, like a radio. My “stations” would be:

  • Thomas Sowell because I’ve never read anyone who could take complex concepts and make them so easy to understand.

  • P.J. O’Rourke just 'cause I agree with his world view and he makes me chuckle.

  • Jake Johansen for thoughts like these: “A lady came up to me on the street and pointed at my suede jacket. ‘You know a cow was murdered for that jacket?’ she sneered. I replied in a psychotic tone, 'I didn’t know there were any witnesses. Now I’ll have to kill you too.”

Some people find humor in killing animals. Ha ha. Or was it just animal lovers you don’t like?

In the same vein, Maddox, of The Best Page in the Universe fame, for such gems as, “For every animal you don’t eat, I shall eat three.”

Richard Dawkins. I wish he’d do a podcast or something.

And, Dmitri Nabokov, just for the faintest glimmer of the genius of his father.
