"Vonnegut is no better or worse than Daniele Steele!"

I enjoyed the recent discussion on the BBC site about 'Ulysses', which altariel linked to, in which a bunch of people showed their ignorance.

In this blog they have taken it a stage further. Pick some great work of art or literature, go to Amazon, and sort the reviews in reverse order of stars. Then you get to sneer at the ignorant bozos who are complaining that Casablanca is in black and white, or that Walt Whitman is self obsessed! Laffs for all the family!

"every one says the aurthor george orwell is so trippy and wierd but i think he's just trying to cover up for the fact that HE CAN'T WRITE. please george do us all a faver and stop writing books." (sic and sic)

"C'mon people! How fun is it to watch a racist, lewd, borrish, and dumb person beating up people for no f-----g reason." (The French Connection)

"The guys in this movie do not know martial arts at all. " (The seven samurai - that one may be a spoof)

""If you want to hear a peak in popular rock music listen to (for example) "Use Your Illusion I & II" by Guns N' Roses. These are the kind of albums that deserve all the praise the White Album gets."
