We may begin a regular feature here at PapoWorld, consisting of TopTen (or more) Lists to be shared and commented on (linked from the very cool site listverse.com)
I don’t know about this list….I mean, I don’t really like the choices but I also don’t feel like I know enough to say otherwise. I haven’t even read some of these. That said, my first thought is about an iconic and important author that is very dear to me, Tom Wolfe. I also think Hunter S. Thompson is incredibly iconic both as an American patriot and/or American symbol of excess and…as an innovator of style and form in journalism (Thompson’s Gonzo Journalism was part of–and in a way, a subsection or example of–Tom Wolfe’s “New Journalism“). I feel like they and some unnamed others may be missing from the list.
now I don’t mean to be like, insensitive or whatever, but… I can’t help but appreciate that this lady looks like she can BOOGIE… uww-HUH

UPDATE Ed: I am trying to reach an agreement with Listverse where they feel comfortable with my usage of their content and where I can still make it available to Citizens of PapoWorld. Stay Tuned.
