It's 90's retro night at Politics and Prose!

Camille Paglia is doing a reading at my hometown's most prominent smartypants bookstore. I really want to take a bottle of scotch and do a shot every time she uses a word with five or more syllables, but I have an event that night.

Don't dis Paglia. Yeah, after a while she got to be a tiresome parody of herself, but most media figures do.
She performed a valuable service in rescuing feminism from the Andrea Dworkins who had dominated it during the eighties.

oh my god!! I LOVE P&P, and I am fuming jealous that La Paglia will be there and I can't see her!!! I used to go to readings there fairly regularly. I would have done a shot every time she referenced the 60's or used the word "chthonic."
