Suspension of intelligence?

Looks like Jim Schembri is on fire today. A couple of corker articles:

One on the 'monumental piece of crap' that is Mr & Mrs Smith. Includes a great line from "Canadian satirist Stephen Butler Leacock, who stated: "Advertising may be described as the science of arresting human intelligence long enough to get money from it.""

The other article is a musing on racism as a popular pasttime! Racism made easy.

Taken with Jim's rant the other day (below) one might assume that this poor fellow is not having a good month. Perhaps he's just had enough of the rubbish that is contemporary consumer permissive capatalist society?

On the radio (RRR) this morning (I had a longer drive to work that usual due to an accident or something blocking the road) a book rep was talking about 'affluenza' which of course ties in nicely with Schembri's stuff (well in some ways anyway).

Enough - I need to go and buy something ...
