Aeon Skoble is Back!



Last night, the Empire State Building dimmed its lights in honor of Fay Wray, who passed away at the age of 96. She starred in the original 1933 version of"King Kong."

That's the kind of classic black-and-white movie that my colleague, pal, and fellow Yankees fan, Aeon Skoble, would really appreciate. He's got impeccable tastes in film (we agree on so much), and also happens to be a first-rate thinker. L&P readers may remember Aeon from his provocative guest stint here about a month ago. It gives me great pleasure therefore to welcome back Aeon, who is here to stay as our newest regular blog contributor.

You can read more about Aeon on his home page. He is also editor-in-chief of Reason Papers.

It is my hope that among his first posts, Aeon will revisit our thread here, and deliver on his promise to link to a copy of his superb essay on the relevance of gay-bashing in the comics world. (And for fans of"The Simpsons," don't forget to check out his terrific co-edited anthology, The Simpsons and Philosophy.)

Welcome aboard, Aeon!

Well, the piece still isn't on the APA web site, so I guess I'll have to PDF it myself. I'll get to that in the next few days.

Thanks for the plug on the Simpsons book. Also, hot off the presses, is my and Conard's book on Woody Allen:
