No Buyers for Palin's Speeches
(Click on for the Beast)

If need be, she could always downgrade to the bar mitzvah circuit: The New York Post reports that the Washington Speakers Bureau—which also represents George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and Condoleezza Rice—is having a hard time convincing potential clients to book Sarah Palin for $100,000 a pop. One industry expert tells the Post: "The big lecture buyers in the U.S. are paralyzed with fear about booking her, basically because they think she is a blithering idiot." Palin is believed to have quit her job as governor of Alaska early, in part, to earn more money. According to the source, many big lecture circuits are subscription series, and bookers are afraid of ticking off subscribers by putting her on the roster.

it's albert camus.

wittgenstein, sartre, and russell all sound good. nietzsche is really fascinating with his concept of god being dead. simone de beauvoir was essentially sartre's partner and she offers a more feminine view of sartre's existentialism, i guess you could say.

I just put that I'm to read one non-fiction book per month. This year is books about writing, fiction or poetry. Next year will be philosophers. I'm still deciding about 2011.
