I got my August Harper's and asked myself why I bother. The theme seemed to be that sick old guys want sex. Why would that interest me?
There was also a review by Dave Hickey of a book I just happened to have already read, The Professor and Other Writings, by Terry Castle. I liked the book, but not to the point where I would drool all over myself about it. You know, it's one thing to write sloppy self-indulgent stuff on a blog, but to put this kind of drivel in a print magazine that claims to target the intelligent reading public is just too much.
