won't somebody think of the tweeters?!

(Or should that be twits?)

From "School Library Journal: "Little did Gaiman know, but his tweet upon hearing the news has generated its own controversy. “F---!!!! I won the F---ING NEWBERY THIS IS SO F---ING AWESOME. I thank you” Gaiman wrote on his Twitter site, neilhimself. "

Evan: "I take it Newbery-winning authors aren't supposed to know that word?"

me: "So some seem to think."

Evan: "It's so disillusioning. It's like finding out that Janet Jackson had a nipple, all over again."
