Words I Like

There a bunch of writers (mostly journalists, but a few fiction writers, too) whom I reguarly seek out. One of my recent favorites is Matt Taibbi, sort of new wave gonzo journalist who now writes for Rolling Stone. Check out this article, called "Jesus Made Me Puke," about how goes undercover at a cultish evangelical retreat in Texas. Each participant is required to tell the group about his or her awful childhood, so Taibbi makes up a story about how his father was an abusive circus clown. Genius!
