“Where are the cries that the farm lobby is driving us to the brink of socialism? Are we willing to ask whether Indiana farmers need $183 million in annual direct payments? Would we feel the same about direct payments if Henry County was 96.2% minority?” David Anderson is just asking.
“On the precipice of another epic adventure, sixty-three games in twenty-two days, it is only appropriate that in Indiana, where it is religion, we ask the basketball gods to look over us and bless our men of twists and turns on the hardwood floors of this great country.” Sing it, David Anderson.

“The story weaves the real-life roller coaster of disease into a teen romance, with doses of poetry, metaphor, violent video games, and the best use of Venn diagrams in contemporary fiction. It is irreverent and poignant.” David Anderson reviews John Green‘s new book, The Fault in Our Stars.
