I really enjoyed this collection. The articles, essays, short stories and cartoons were incredibly diverse and give the reader a glimpse of what's being published outside of the mainstream. There's something for every mood - light-hearted, humorous anecdotes, serious journalistic accounts of what it's like to be on the fringe of society, etc.The great thing about a collection such as this is each selection is completely unrelated to the next: one minute you're reading a silly piece about Craig's List Missed Connections and the next you're reading about a kidnapped journalist. And if you have given up hope on the youth of America, the selections included in this collection were chosen by high school students! Amazing.
