Oh my . . .

Watch the CNN video on the home page.

I don't know where to begin.

I clicked on that thinking, oh, come now Andrew, how bad could it be? All I can say is ...

Oh, my stars!

I couldn't watch after the 35th use of the word "values"

Can't type - vomiting.

(Seriously, I had to turn it off.)

Dahhh...

I love the send-off: "There are no great stories or storytellers anymore." Can we send those guys back in time to 1943, too?

Also: "It's time travel... Nazis... pirates!"

He pulled the same "Oh, thank you for writing a story with old-fashioned values" line when he had Stephanie Meyer on. This guy is more puke-provoking than Madonna. Behold, her explanation of why she started writing for children: "I was in the bookstore one day and I noticed there weren't any good books for kids."

Dear Mr. Bell: Thank you for writing your book "Nick of Time." I am clearly your target audience, and much in need of a "values" infusion. Although I do not have a sister, I realized in the course of your interview that if I did, I'd have willingly handed her over to the Evil Nazi Doctor. This is clearly UNHEROIC, so if the situation somehow occurs, I'll do otherwise. More importantly, thank you Mr. Beck for reminding me that if my hypothetical sister has the gall to attempt to save herself and me from CERTAIN DEATH, her only motivation will be political correctness, since girls are incapable of decisive action. With your sound words fresh in my mind, I'll advise her to have the decency to remain a passive observer in my male-narrated fantasy in future. Sincerely, Antony John, future HERO.

I'm not sure what's more repulsive, the interview or the author photo to the left with his tux shirt open wide and a creepy "come hither boy" stare.

emasculating?
I'd rotffl, but this idiot talks and--could it be true?--believe that things are the way he says they are?
