Quotable, 12/10/10

From Joel Stein’s “The Year of the Leak,” in the Dec. 20, 2010 issue of Time:

…my request for 2011 – or the Year of the Depend Adult Undergarment, as it’s known in David Foster Wallace’s novel Infinite Jest, in which every year is sponsored by an advertiser – is for everyone to handle leaks better. It’s an indiscriminate flood [of oil, gossip, text messages, photos, etc.] out there, and I’m no longer sure what to pay attention to.

While we’re at it: more on Infinite Jest. And Stein’s other recent column, “You Can’t Spell Time Without ‘I’ and ‘Me'” is certainly worth reading.
