    “, our web presence, collects the most shocking, unusual and quirkiest news articles, podcasts and videos on the web …”

    ohhhhhkay …

    (BTW – I love Sendak as much as the next guy, but lately Disinfo has just become the front page of Yahoo News.)

    Agreed. Sendak is awesome, but not really primetime Disinfo fare. At least not in the “shocking, unusual, or quirkiest” category. 

    However, as I type this, I realize that I’ve just changed my mind …

    “Wild Things” definitely opened a door to magical perception for generations of kids, myself included. Those of us who regularly haunt disinfo probably do so because we see life in unusual ways, and we owe some of that to our formative influences. I, for one, will raise a tall glass of disinfo to Sendak, and wish him well on his next wild journey.

    Okay enough of that. Bring back the Alien Nazi Bankers.
