Read in August, 2009

A collection of humorous fiction, commentaries on real cases, fiction and non-fiction essays, and cartoon drawings. It's a bit of a mixed bag, though. While most of the entries are good to very enjoyable, a couple of others required some dedication to get through. Thus the 3 stars instead of 4 (3-1/2 would be better - and there are some 5-star pieces in here, so I'm glad to have read it). For such a short book, there does seem to be some filler.

I guess it's odd that less of something would make it better -- I mean, the best parts aren't any worse for being connected to the lesser parts. But that's the way it is.
