Always the critic

I have to write a review of The Logic of Life: Uncovering the New Economics of Everything. I know, reviewing a book about economics… who'd've thunk?

Watched the movie Ratatouille (which is genius, I did well at the video store this weekend). I think my favourite part - by no means the best - just something that resonated with me, was the review by the creepy restaurant critic:

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment.

We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so."

I shall bear that in mind.
