We love her for all the things she hates so eloquently: tabloids, stupidity, celebrity sycophants, poor spelling. Her columns in various publications have consistently made us laugh and confirmed our suspicions that the rest of the world is dumb. But we've been wary, too: What if we were to catch her attention ourselves? We'd never survive if Cintra Wilson's cutting wit were directed at us. With that in mind, we feel trepidation about attending her reading and seeing her in person. Her new book, Colors Insulting to Nature, is supposed to be really good -- and extra mean. We love that, but we're scaredy-cats. You? Be brave, starting at 7 p.m. at the Booksmith, 1644 Haight (at Cole), S.F. Admission is free; call 863-8688 or visit www.booksmith.com.
