I defer to those who preceded me because I have not read PJOR for some years. But I have just discovered this site and saw his name and had to reply. He is great, isn't he? Come on! I remember one of his pieces that had Madame and Monsieur Curie in it. Something about going out with them socially...."They glowed," he said. I howled.

Come on, he IS funny.

Hey, I'm asking this for a friend, but was he in a fraternity at UMiami?

I always thought he was trying to be a right-wing Hunter Thompson; he did write for Rolling Stone, after all. He did manage to ape some of Hunter's wit, but missed completely his razor-sharp political insight and basic humanity.

Not to mention, Hunter was a really fucking good writer. P.J. is . . . not really fucking good.
