I ain't talking about the Fuckemos

I've got one simple rule that I use to guide my everyday life. It is the following:

Any magazine article that includes the sentence, "The black helicopters that deliver The New York Times every morning must have skipped my street." has got to be worth reading.

Really, it's that easy. If I am reading a magazine and I come across this sentence, I know that I must finish the article because it is well-worth reading. So, imagine my delight this afternoon when I saw that exact sentence (!) in this article about Rick Santorum in the American Prospect. Some people scoff at my fundamental principal, but today it really payed off!
