Yesterday we speculated that some sort of force of cosmic justice had caused Daniel Gross to back up his wild predictions on Slate with a promise to eat the first chapter of a book of someone else's wild predictions. Eddy Elfenbein wonders if it isnt something else, something lurking deep inside Gross's grey matter.

But there’s something about Gross and Dow 36,000. He has a rather bizarre history with this book. I’m not sure what to call it. An obsession? Gross simply MUST reference it, no matter how tangential it is to his topic. He can't not do it. As "wine-dark" is to sea," Dow 36,000 is to...well, everything! Especially everything Republican.
