HUMP debates

Hello friends! A week in which all the lit zines are selecting their Best of the Net winners, and the presidential debates air, and the leaves leap off their trees, still, the literature continues to come, like waves reach the shore, then recede, back again into the ethers:

    Someone essentially takes the enormous amount of time to make these posts? This is the very first time I frequented your blog and to this point? I’m shocked with the information you gleaned to create this actual post every week and put it up… extraordinary. What a wonderful task!
