Jesse Jackson, Jr. and the 2011 Darwin Award

Remember the Darwin Awards? Those sometimes apocryphal tales about people who remove themselves from the collective gene pool through some act of sublime stupidity. Naturally, most awards are posthumous but there are a few in which the recipient managed – against all odds – to survive. Like “Lawn Chair Larry”, for instance.

I think Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. could be a living contender this year, however, for his brainless rant from the House floor on Friday, April 15, in which he castigated the iPad as a device that was destroying jobs. Thank God for the video, because we wouldn’t have believed it otherwise.


Enough said.

There’s no going back. Electronic books are the way of the future. Hmmm. I’m little old fashioned. I like a good old paper book to read.

Lots of people are buying books over the internet, that ‘s having an impact on book retailers more than the electronic book.(my guess)
