Amazon's "PlogTM" is really stupid. "It's like a blog but with a P! And it's on my Amazon front page! Golly! Internet wonders never cease!" I'll get into it more in depth later when I have time to write, but suffice to say that golly gosh gee, it's another way of them pushing the items they want to push and who'da thunk it:

Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man was released today; We thought you'd be interested because you rated Harpo Speaks!.
Oh yes, since I once rated Harpo Marx' autobiography I'm sure to enjoy someone's "lol Michael Moore is fat lol" rebuttal book. Oh, indeed. But what's this?

My Life was released today; We thought you'd be interested because you bought The Moose That Roared: The Story of Jay Ward, Bill Scott, a Flying Squirrel, and a Talking Moose.
Now Amazon supposedly thinks that because I bought Keith Scott's wonderful account of the life and times of Jay Ward Productions, I'd juuuust happen to like Bill Clinton's memoirs?

Bull-puckey.

I'm waiting for Amazon to finally go "You know, we can drop the pretense, can't we?" and head these things with "ITEMS WE'RE JUST TRYING TO PUSH ON EVERYBODY." Because, honestly, this half-assed attempt at justification is really sad.
