What I mean is this article, where Melvin Jules Bukiet denounces a lot of fluffy bullshit.
He is overzealous, sure, but come on. How is this not right:

If you read Bookslut (or the American Scholar, I guess), you've already seen this article, but I basically want to invite my friends to read it. That's pretty much all this blog does. Friend invitations. Requests.
