Ads, this note's for you: a new DFW essay called Consider the Lobster. Amazing how quickly these things spread on the blog community. There's nothing left but for DFW to make his own blog, footnoted.com or something.

This quote/footnote's from Rakesprogress: intranational tourism: "...radically constricting, and humbling in the hardest way--hostile to my fantasy of being a real individual, of living somehow outside and above it all...[t]o be a mass tourist, for me, is to become a pure late-date American: alien, ignorant, greedy for something you cannot ever have, disappointed in a way you can never admit. It is to spoil, by way of sheer ontology, the very unspoiledness you are there to experience...[a]s a tourist, you become economically significant but existentially loathsome, an insect on a dead thing." TingleAlley also has a quote which some bastard's already commented on.

How excitement.
