Mutant energy

Howard Hampton reviews Mark LeVine's Heavy Metal Islam in the NYT Book Review. (That there's even a brief "Up Front" with H.H., featuring a squinty caricature, makes me think this could be the start of a good trend.)

Not quite as much of the trademark Hampton high-low punnery as we're used to, but a feast nonetheless!

Amusingly, the caricature they ran in the print edition seems to be of Howard Hampton, ex leader of Ontario's New Democratic Party. No relation, I'm guessing.

Oh wait, I see they appended a correction. And yep, it was the NDP's Hampton. Still funny.

VERY funny, eh?

(That's both a Canadian eh and a general-use eh.)
