There's this Dinty Moore which you probably know about. And there's this Dinty Moore which you probably don't. Buy this Dinty if you're looking for a quick fix of salt and carbs. Buy this one if you're hungry for a nourishing stew of wise and weird narrative, like:
If you rearrange the letters in Osama Bin Laden, you can form the phrase "A damn alien SOB."
Well, if Osama were an alien--like, from Pluto--then we'd have an easier answer to why he has done what he has done. He came from outer space.
Dinty 2.0's new book is called Between Panic & Desire, named after two towns in Pennsylvania. It's less like a book than a hand-held blog. I'm enjoying it immensely. You might, too.
