The Passion of Howard Stern - Rob Felt

Drawing a comparison between shock radio specialist Howard Stern and Jesus Christ requires an amount of dexterity I wouldn't trust to my fellow columnists, so I will make the twists and bends myself.

Is pop culture getting smarter? - April Avison

Since it became wildly popular a few years ago, reality television has annoyed me. I wondered why people would waste their time watching such crap.
