I've been reading P.J. O'Rourke's new book Driving Like Crazy and enjoying it enough that I have also poked around on the internet to see what is up with him and what else he has been writing and saying.
P.J.'s wikipedia page is here, an essay in the WSJ on the demise of the American auto industry is here, and you can read about his bout with cancer here and here.
Oh, and the book is worth it just for the classic essay "How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink". The rest is good too.
Who was my favorite student this term?
