Yeah, USA Today is the publication I turn to when looking for literature recommendations...

Why not?  Not giving you guff, just very unfamiliar with USA Today, other than the fact that iirc they do the college rankings.

Also that was a pretty good list.

You can literally read it cover to cover in about twenty-five minutes.  It's "hard-level" sudoku could probably be finished by a fourth-grader.  It's probably aimed at about a 90 IQ.  Which is fine, below average people need papers too, but I'd rather the NYT or WSJ.

My favorite (so far):
Opinion 21-5254, United States Court of Appeals For The District Of Columbia.
It's a dry read, but you'll enjoy the ending.

Gotcha.  Thanks.  Maybe that's why I've never read it!

Certainly isn't literature that's going to show up on this kind of list, but if you're a horror fan the one-two punch of My Heart Is A Chainsaw and The Final Girls Support Group is fantastic.

I think It's US News and World Report that does the college rankings fwiw

That book is so, so, so good.  I also enjoyed the book about Nathan Hale (forget the title at the moment - something like One Life to Give) that came out at about the same time.

Garry Trudeau had is right, USA Today is McPaper.
Jenny Lawson is a riot.

Feh.  Children's books don't count!.  Try AAR Manual of Standards and Recommended Practices, Section K Part II "Locomotive Electronics and Train Consist System Architecture"

Now that's some deep, meaningful prosezzzzzz......

Didn't look, but it probably missed "The Night Sheriff" by Phil Foglio

Ah, you're probably right.  Thanks for the correction.

I know we have a lot of Neal Stephenson fans here, have any of you Farkers read his latest?

I am, and I have not.   Dodge in Hell disappointed me a lot.

Me too.  But I'm probably going to give the new one a shot at some point in the next month or so.

I probably will, too, at some point.  Right now I have the biggest stack of "to read" books I have ever  had, so I will probably wait until it comes out in paperback.
