Tony Scott on DFW

The best sentence I've read in recent memory:
He was smarter than anyone else, but also poignantly aware that being smart didn’t necessarily get you very far, and that the most visible manifestations of smartness — wide erudition, mastery of trivia, rhetorical facility, love of argument for its own sake — could leave you feeling empty, baffled and dumb.
Update: This is appropriately absurd and hilarious.

The Onion has truly been on fire recently.

When will I read DFW and finally be admitted into the Great Conversation? I really need to pick up the slack on this front.
