If by "Chosen Person snob" you mean Jewish, what's his religion got to do
with his snobbery? Sheesh.

Yeah, although I'm not so sure how defensive it is -- half the time it's
these educated hipster coastal types laughing at Middle Americans with some
bizarre twist in their lives. They seek them out, so I think I'd call it
Plus there's what Lynda Barry said about ex-boyfriend Ira Glass in "One
Hundred Demons," which only reinforces the image that he's this little
princeling of a Chosen Person snob who laughs at all the clueless blue

David Sedaris I have no such problems with. He can be savage, but in the
end he's far more savage to himself than to anyone else. And he's extremely
funny. Oh, and he gave us one of the greatest real-life characters ever --
his mother. Who would not love to be friends with David Sedaris's mother?
