The Triumphant Return of Lee Siegel

Now this is funny. Forwarded from an email list:

I'm looking for a research assistant to help me with a book about Internet culture that I'm writing for Doubleday, which is due to be finished by the end of next March. My name is Lee Siegel, and I'm a senior editor at the New Republic, and the author of "Fallling Upwards: Essays in Defense of the Imagination," a collection of essays that has just been published.

I would prefer a graduate student. Salary is to be decided with the person I hire.

Anyone who is interested can respond to me at this email address : [address redacted]

Thank you.


Lee Siegel

What's next? A textbook on theoretical physics by George W. Bush? A Guide to Civility and Manners from Michael Savage? A foreign policy treatise by Peter Beinart? Oh, wait...
