Almost Too Strange To Describe

Maybe it’s because we’ve lost an hour of sleep this week (no, we are not letting go of this — it is wrong to deprive us of even a minute of our favorite activity), but the Guardian story linked below may very well be the strangest thing we’ve encountered in years. If we have the whole thing straight, it goes something like this:

  1. Naomi Klein writes essay.
  2. Essay is licensed for republication.
  3. Something happens and essay is included in anthology. Other authors become involved.
  4. Other stuff happens and the anthology cover lists Naomi Klein’s name, creating a false impression.
  5. Even more stuff happens and much confusion has ensued.

It is quite possible we missed a few things here, but that seem to be the gist of the story. We suppose this may truly be a case where you can’t judge a book by its cover.
