Lynne, I honestly don't believe in too far. When the French locked up a "comedian" who traffics in anti-Semitism right after the Charlie Hebdo attack, I thought it was wrong and continue to think it's wrong. I absolutely disagree with what this idiot has to say, but if saying it is cause for incarceration, we are all in a lot of trouble.

Jeff Cohen An artist should never respond to criticism. It does no good at all, and can result only in a portion of one's audience seeing a side that isn't attractive. And yet, here's where I try to justify myself... Continue reading

The driving thing wasn’t bravery, Hank—it was cheapness. And I brought my portable GPS from home, so there were no worries. That was the least stressful part of the whole enterprise, other than talking to readers and booksellers. You, on the other hand, are on the Book Tour that Wouldn’t End, and I am in awe of your stamina!

And yet Jet Blue believes I should pay for my flight from San Francisco to Long Beach despite my never having been in San Francisco. Silly Jet Blue. Next time, Sue. No matter what.

Jeff Cohen There's what I want to think, and what I think. They're not the same thing. Like many people, I have watched in morbid fascination over the past few weeks as allegations have multiplied against Bill Cosby. This past... Continue reading
