The Dark Tower series is awesome. Maybe it's not for everyone, and maybe it's overly ambitious towards the end, and maybe the last three books were written too quickly and edited too little. But it's still a pretty great seven-book series I think. It's epic and it's exciting and its protagonists are interesting characters. Taking weird details out of context and pointing at their ridiculousness is sort of unfair, by the way. It's a sci-fi/western/horror/fantasy, obviously it is going to have weird details. That goes with the territory.

When you buy something, you're buying a good or service. You're not buying politics. All you're ethically responsible for is what ends up on the receipt. Once the transaction is done, the relationship between customer and corporation is over. If I go to Chick-fil-A to eat a sandwich, what the COO ends up doing with that money, no matter how wonderful or horrible it is, isn't my concern and isn't my responsibility. It's not my money anymore. It's his. People should be able to buy whatever they want without being accused of "saying" something politically, if indeed all they're trying to "say" is, "hey, these guys make damn good waffle fries." And Chick-fil-A makes damn good waffle fries.

I can't have any respect for any of these lists because they ignore The Roots' "Undun."
