Oedipus Rex?! Read a book!

Watch it to the end. Srsly.

It never ceases to amaze me how illiterate the world seems to be. I'm not in a tizzy about people's improper conjugation in blog posts (God knows I'm guilty of it), or the proliferation of omg like lolz AOL speak. I'm talking about the cause for blunder like this. Is it really any wonder people don't catch literary references, or the basic concept of a metaphor? That last one as you know has been the cause for more murder and genocide throughout history than anything else I can think of, except perhaps subverted sexual desire.

How is an author to sell a book in this climate?

The cure?

For once, this is an easy one. To quote the hand-puppet:
