I really enjoyed Gary Shteyngart’s (never heard of him) witty and dodgy answers in the NY Times Magazine this Sunday. Here’s my favorite quote, read the whole thing here.

In your novel, Fox News has become Fox Liberty Ultra.
I’ve seen Fox News a couple of times. It’s a nice transition from the Pravda of yesteryear. It’s a party line without a party.

And this newspaper becomes The New York Lifestyle Times. Why would you make an unkind prophecy like that?
It means more Circuits, more fashion and style, and I love that stuff. Don’t get me wrong. The real-estate section really is my favorite section.

(I’ll be honest, I read it for the lifestyle.)
