Roy Blount Jr. is one of America's greatest living humorists, and in this New York Times op-ed piece, he shows why. Writing about the latest version of Amazon's Kindle book-reader, in his role as president of the Author's Guild, Blount attacks the device because it can read books out loud in a robotic voice. Brilliant, hilarious stuff. Blount even suggests this "read out loud" feature is some sort of violation of author's rights. It's killer satire, I tell you.
