1 “… I thought that for a European intellectual there was nothing more important than to understand what was happening in America, to go and tell the Americans what was wrong with their society.” “I’m not anti-American — I can’t stand the French prejudice against America.” OK, right. “For instance, I think I helped to persuade Jacques Chirac to bomb the Serb positions around Sarajevo and thus stop a massacre.” “I hate war — it scares and disgusts me, and it leaves me bitter and sad.” He disgusts him so much he got involved. “I know it’s odd, but I find the idea of eating at home repugnant.” No Bernard, you’re repugnant.

3 That Lileks is a sick, sick man. No, really, he's... oh the heck with it, I read it over an hour ago and am still giggling: "and I note that the stairs work the same way going up as they do going down. This was something the ancients knew, and understood. I believe it gave them comfort." hee, hee!!
