There are right wing nuts too?

I thought it was just porn.

BTW--what does "literary" mean?

I agree, Bartleby's is a true treasure trove.

The text can be a bit of a hassle. The "Bart" site has them already displayed on the page which is nice. Ur site's selection is impressive too though. Thanks for its introduction! :>

Good post. Actually the DU most times just refers to Freepers as wingnuts.

3) Versed in or fond of literature or learning.

Okay, okay, I must have missed JimRobs directive that sarcasm, irony, pathos and self-depricating humor were no longer acceptable here on FR. I hereby stipulate for the record that I knew the meaning of literary and have even been known to pore over the occasional tome.

Henceforth I shall employ humor, to quote the Raven, "Nevermore".

If you buy that one, I have some choice oceanfront property in Wyoming for sale.

It is a great site. It not only has the "Five Foot Shelf" of Harvard Classics, but over two dozen reference books, Oxford Anthologies of Poetry, collections of quotations, the inaugural addresses of the presidents, the books Theodore Roosevelt wrote, and much else besides.

If you like Project Avalon's collection of historical documents, make sure you check out The Liberty Library of Constitutional Classics, The Founders' Constitution, The Making of America, OKU Historical Documents, LOC Searchable Historical Documents, and A Century of Lawmaking. Not light reading, but useful if you ever get in an argument about government or history. American history fans may also find some surprises at The Atlantic Magazine's archives, if they look around a little.

I was only joking. I have no interest in obtaining porn over the internet from Amazon or anyone else.

I prefer to go to the local adult bookstore, and swap stories and lies with the other perverts.

Only Joking.

See, I'm learning to attach bold alerts for the more literalistic FReepers.
