Not the place you'd expect good satire-related writing...

It's actually ridiculous, but for two months in a row now, the in-flight magazine for US Airways has published great pieces related to the world of satire.

In their May 2007 issue, William Trotter's Jokes, Hoaxes, and Just Plain Lies offers a great history lesson on the art of fooling the public - and your political enemies. And the June 2007 issue features the last interview conducted with one of the greatest satirists of the 20th century, Kurt Vonnegut.

One quote from it I wanted to pull for you:

I asked my son Mark what he thought life was all about, and he said, “We are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is.” I think that says it best.

Little food for thought on a Monday morning.

Satire pervades the web, seeping into mailboxes and mainstream news like a spilled cup of coffee. It stains and it won't go away.
