    I used to think "A Handmaid's Tale" was a good book. But then I realized how insanely silly the premise was.

    As for her column... If I facepalmed over it, I'd touch the wall behind me it was so bad.

    Telling and troubling that in the 174 years since the story’s publication, this inane and tedious issue continues to trouble us. And unfortunately will continue to do so for some time to come.

    Maybe the almost bankrupt left leaning hypocritical NY Times "gotta love Margaret Atwood" but to the rest of us she is just another Canadian left wing radical.
