Jonathan Franzen did us all a favor, really. What else were we all going to do this morning if not read about his plan to adopt a war orphan as a plan to better understand young people? And thanks to the Twitter that he so loathes, we can also get front row seats to a whole universe of very, very funny people discussing just how crazy that plan was. The only sad part is that because he's on Twitter, he won't see all of these great jokes. We'll just have to hope that someone in his life can show him how to search for a hashtag on Twitter so he can take a look.
