Currently Reading -- Top Shelf sent along a preview copy of Veeps. It's not comics, but it's damned funny, and informative as well. I'm only up to the Civil War, and enjoying the hell out of it so far.

In the world of prose non-fiction, I'm about two-thirds of the way through Fareed Zakaria's The Post-American World. His assessment of the next few decades seems unaware of Peak Oil and The Long Emergency, or maybe he just thinks iPhones and the Prius will allow the Easy Motoring Utopia to continue, just with the global focus moving to China and India. It's interesting for the many historical observations he makes, but I do doubt the continued growth he sees over a span of the next fifty years or so, unless space aliens show up with a solution for the confluence of problems that are clusterfucking all around us on a now-daily basis.

Did you see The Daily Show the other night, with the compare and contrast segment on simultaneous speeches by Bush and Bernanke? Scary, illuminating and funny as hell. Well, at least we get some yocks on the slow ride to hell...
