This episode definitely had it's moments of humor, as most Simpsons episodes do, but again they're giving us the "We're smarter than you" episode. I mean, yeah, I guess you might as well try to educate the denizens of TV land, but I don't know who half these people are. Gore Vidal and Tom Wolfe I know by name only, I've read Maya Angelou and Anne Rice, and everyone else you might as well make up names because I have no idea who they are. They did this same thing before with the one where Homer became a artist, throwing out other names of modern artists who a lot of us might not know. So... it's funny, but you proabbly don't appreciate the jokes as much if you don't know who these people are.
