Most of you are probably familiar with NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu. the Romanian immigrant writer lives in New Orleans, and he has been interviewed about his experiences with surviving Hurricane Katrina. In 1996, Codrescu published "The Dog with the Chip in His Neck," one of his many essay collections.
I love this last line from his essay "It's a Crime" which is in "Dog."
It reads: "The right wing couldn't live a day without its criminals."
