Fans of Dave's more recent daily microblog, The Morning Porch, might not realize that... More > he ever had this cynical, urban alter-ego, a modern-day Diogenes who, with his old-school, cardboard-based messaging system, literally sleeps on everything he writes. "Bonta's words are given another layer of meaning by their fixed context, the unchanging homeless character whose placard they grace. "Friend Me" takes on a completely different significance seen here, as opposed to on one's favorite social networking site.

In this book Dave moves towards cementing his reputation as satirist and as an important contemporary gadfly." --Kaspalita Thompson< Less
