Sometimes it's better not to ask 

Part of my daily Internet rounds tends to be Amazon.com, where I take a two minute look at the Top 100 and anything else that looks interesting. And every so often something really bizarre crops up all of a sudden on the bestseller lists that I can't explain.

Case in point: The #1 book in the U.S. right now is The Road to Serfdom: Text and Documents--The Definitive Edition (The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek).

Now, aside from feeling like a moron for not knowing who the hell F.A. Hayek was, (Selma's grandfather?) I had to know what this was all about.

A quick Google search solved the mystery: Apparently Glenn Beck held up a copy of it on his show and urged his frightening followers to put down their "Where's the birth certificate?" signs and read it.

He probably cried, too.
