    A snippet from today’s interview with Marc Maron that didn’t make the final cut: Terry and Marc Maron talk pornography.

  3. Boone H., cashier at Powell’s City of Books, recommends America Again by Stephen Colbert.

    "Stephen Colbert strikes again. This guy has been a plethora of laughs for decades now. I fell in love with his style of humor when I first watched him onStrangers with Candy, and it’s never gotten old. I love the new title… reloaded! Every page of the book is filled with sidesplitting funnies and ha-ha’s. America, pick up this book now! If you don’t, you might risk being less American, and I don’t think Stephen would approve.”

    Give this to: true patriots, your congressman, college students
