As a former Borders employee, I could really sympathize with the sentiment in this article from The Stranger, for which I produced the following illustration. In a nutshell, it's about how a plug from Oprah increases a book's demand a thousand fold, even though the books she chooses to feature are often the worst kind of self-help, flim-flam horseshit; in this case, Rhonda Byrne's The Secret.

Those people are such morons. I just wish Oprah would order them to drink the Kool Aid and end it already.

(And have a glass herself, of course!)
