When God created Bob Somerby, He threw
away the mold. (Not the spores, mind you,
just the mold.) The contrarian's contrarian,
Somerby was, once upon a time, the Harvard
roommate of both Al Gore and Tommy Lee Jones.
Whereas they went on to fame and fortune, Bob
had to settle for being an elementary school
teacher, stand-up comic, blogger, and the
prime example cited by lexicographers
for the definitions of 'Crank', 'Eccentric',
and 'Nitpicking No-See-Um'.
