That's "harmjoy" to you -- An interesting Morning News piece on schadenfreude, that devilish emotion springing from the moment you take pleasure in the misfortune of others. Not like the refugees in Darfur or anything, more like Plagiarist du Jour Kaavya Viswanathan. And on that note, I picked up the latest book by Megan McCafferty, from whom Kaavya allegedly cribbed, expecting chicklitalicious, solid gold crap, and...it wasn't so awful. Huh.
