Linked from HuffPo: Shock Doctrine Confab

Good Morning,

After watching John Cusack's Huffington Post interview with Naomi Klein, the perspicacious author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, I'm moved first to wolf down her tome and second, to finally devise a plan for getting the fuck out of America for good. Klein's insights are indeed revelatory; her extrapolations have often horrifying implications. This, and today's Times' op-ed on the sickening rightward lurch of the Supreme Court have made me nervous as Hell and in need of a 14-year-old single malt, neat, and a one-way, first-class ticket on Finnair. (Jesus, even Grozny-Avia would do...)

Prepare for the worst.
