How cool is Stephen King? He was just given an award from the National Book Foundation and he sorta told off the critics who never give him any play because he's a popular writer.

"Nor do I have any patience with or use for those who make a point of pride in saying they have never read anything by John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Mary Higgins Clark or any other popular writer," he quipped. "What do you think? You get social academic brownie points for deliberately staying out of touch with your own culture?"

I highly recommend reading the article, it's pretty good.

I saw that and I agree with him! The only thing more obnoxious than an academic snob is a bigot!
