What is online: my most recent Web column for Reason, a defense of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. This one may require a small correction: At one point I declare it "unlikely that a real Nazi soldier would be familiar with the phrase 'Mexican stand-off.'" Henry Jenkins tells me that this isn't necessarily unlikely -- many Germans would know the phrase from the western novels of Karl May, a German writer whose name is invoked in the movie.
Finally, I should probably mention that I turn 39 today. For the next year everyone will assume I'm lying about my age.
