Trump lost tonight. Spin it all you want. Spin it into cotton candy if it makes you happy. Trump. Lost. #Debates2016
I love that @TeamCoco cut to a passed-out @AndyRichter after introducing me. Best talk show -- STILL -- on TV. Awkward & brilliant.
I'm in despair. I'll take what I can get. Whatever heaves me out of bed in the morning. https://t.co/6wsVBL6p3n
The climate change/China Tweet WAS deleted. Were other not? Happy to admit when I'm wrong. https://t.co/KyGJVWeNHE
Back when me & @TrueCrimeDiary met @HillaryClinton. She was laid-back and funny. Hillary was cool, too. https://t.co/j0GEWJO4wg

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Horror of the Heights" (1913)

@ 1:00 PM

Arthur Conan Doyle writing a horror story?! And what's more, it's a big, honking, flying MONSTER story?

Well, yeah. And it works. The creator of Sherlock Holmes is channeling Lovecraft here. But where Lovecraft suggests, Doyle likes to be plausible...but explicit. Gahan Wilson, in his introduction to this story, says you'll think about this on your next transatlantic flight and look up. So many times when I've been on an airplane, and we entered one of those huge-but-enclosed canyons of clouds, I thought of this. Long before I ever read this story. And Doyle brought my suspicions to life. To horrible, bloated life.
