Great Moments In Literature

Guess who has a book on Amazon? No, really - guess. Its someone you should recognize, because they played a part in a recent scandal. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you.......Crystal Gail Mangum.

No, seriously. I shit you not.

I know what you're saying. "Russ, doesn't the world need another book written by a self promoting skank* with mental health issues?" I say YES! - and since Courtney Love and Joe Biden are currently busy with other engagements, why not offer the alleged victim in the Great Alleged Duke Lacrosse Rape Cluster-frack and Mongolian Media Goat Rodeo a book deal?

I was skimming a local political website when I ran headlong into this Masterpiece of The Printed Word. Apparently, Ms. Mangum's "Gentleman of Leisure Business Manager" helped her publish a book dedicated to revealing "her side of the story"**.

** (You know......the side of the story that was ignored by everyone, except maybe MSNBC, Nancy Grace, the Group of 88 on the Duke Campus, Mike Nifong & the local DA's office, the vast majority of the national media, and the usual race-hustling suspects (Sharpton, Jackson, et. al.), and watercooler conversations around the entire world)

Apparently, this gentleman is a VERY aggressive googler, since a tangental mention of this book in a comment appearing on a blog dedicated to Iowa Republican politics caused him to rush headlong into the fray and start "putting us some freakin' knowledge".

I doubt that I'll ever take the time to read this book, but the fact that it even exists makes me doubt the basic goodness of humanity.

(* - I originally used the word "whore" here, but I decided to change it to "skank" because I don't believe that Ms. Mangum was ever convicted of prostitution. Just because someone is involved in dancing naked at frat parties, that doesn't necessarily mean that they have ever exchanged sexual intercourse for cash. I believe in being precise, and since that word has a very negative implication, I decided to "not go there", and I'd appreciate if the rest of you would also refrain from piling on a tragic figure with mental health issues.................by saving your venom for the race hustling pimps who are trying to make money off this disgusting book.)
