At Least Until Publication of "Beavis and Mimesis," My Memoir of the 1990s

It can't have been easy to pick finalists for the Atlanta Journal- Constitution's contest for World's Worst Book Title -- not with candidates such as Letting It Go: A History of American Incontinence and Everything You'll Need to Remember About Alzheimer's.

I'm not sure how the contest was run, or if it was fair. A lot of times with these things it's all about who you know.

Still, the results are in, and AJC has announced that the winner is Cooking with Pooh. This title is for real. But I'm sure readers can come up with worse titles than that, just as real.

Everything is run by who you know for both good and bad, whatever the hell those terms might mean. Even Pelosi and Cheney have been long standing buddies. Is this good or bad since they all suck swill at the same trough at K-Street? Who you know is what makes the difference in "making it" in every discipline.

Now you know I do believe that was a joke, son....a joke.
