Ultimately, though, Spoiled Rotten America is an insightful, and surprisingly heartfelt, plea for us to notice what's best and worst about ourselves. "The American pendulum only swings to extremes," he says. "The news is on all day, but we know less and less; everyone has a phone but nothing to say. It's all or nothing, and the world is going to Hell in a hand basket. What better time for a collection of comic essays?"
What better time indeed.
