I don't mean to brag, but I know Peter Suderman. Personally. Why, just last week, his encyclopedic movie knowledge and biting wit were showcased at libertarian movie night. I helped him move. (Up four nausea-inducing flights of stairs). We run into each other at Big Bear all the time. Often when I find myself standing next to him outside Black Cat at one in the morning, listening to his witty opinions on new bands, I think to myself, "I wonder what the proles do for entertainment?"

All of which is by way of saying that this is a pretty great post.
