Now that was a fine Sunday morning read!

This is the time when all the old cliches get dusted off. TANSTAAFL comes to mind.

You know, Trevanian wrote back in the late 1970s (in Shibumi) about the pop-culture deification of fun. He was talking mostly about American and Americans, about which and whom he seems to have a low opinion, but then he apparently has a low opinion of practically everyone except the Japanese and the Basque.

I read both linked articles, and they're both excellent.
