You know when grown-ups tell you everything's going to be fine, and you think they're probably lying to make you feel better?
Yes.
Everything's going to be fine.

In All Fairness

Andrew Sullivan may be a little slow, but he's not completely insane:
When I first read the CBS story, I thought the docs were "devastating." I'm not backing this president for re-election. But all that is completely beside the frigging point. Journalists are supposed to provide accurate evidence for their claims. CBS didn't. And its response to the critics is to stonewall and try and change the subject. The correct response - the one they'd teach you in kindergarten journalism class - is immediately to check the authenticity of the documents as best you can, and if the doubts persist, to apologize immediately and yank the story.
(His italics.)

Birthday Girl

Harvey's not the only one celebrating a birthday.
A Lady Who Thinks She Is Thirty

Unwillingly Miranda wakes,
Feels the sun with terror,
One unwilling step she takes,
Shuddering to the mirror.

Miranda in Miranda's sight
Is old and gray and dirty;
Twenty-nine she was last night;
This morning she is thirty.

Shining like the morning star,
Like the twilight shining,
Haunted by a calendar,
Miranda is a-pining.

Silly girl, silver girl,
Draw the mirror toward you;
Time who makes the years to whirl
Adorned as he adored you.

Time is timelessness for you;
Calendars for the human;
What's a year, or thirty, to
Loveliness made woman?

Oh, Night will not see thirty again,
Yet soft her wing, Miranda;
Pick up your glass and tell me, then--
How old is Spring, Miranda?

Ogden Nash

Happy birthday Jennifer!

And The Have-Nots

Quoth Andrew Sullivan:
MEMOS, MEMOS: The Bush-wing of the blogosphere keeps asking questions, which is a good thing. But it seems to me the money graf in the latest AP report is the following:
CBS
stood by its reporting. "As a standard practice at CBS, each of the
documents broadcast on "60 Minutes" was thoroughly investigated by
independent experts and we are convinced of their authenticity," CBS
News said in a statement.
The White House distributed the four memos
from 1972 and 1973 after obtaining them from CBS News. The White House
did not question their accuracy.
But we'll see, won't we?
Indeed, we have already seen...

We who have not turned our eyes away.

You Took The Best Of Me...

The 40th Edition of the Best of Me Symphony is now up at The Owner's Manual. Your hostess: Dorothy Parker.
Say my love is easy had,
    Say I'm bitten raw with pride,
Say I am too often sad --
    Still behold me at your side.

Say I'm neither brave nor young,
    Say I woo and coddle care,
Say the devil touched my tongue --
    Still you have my heart to wear.

But say my verses do not scan,
    And I get me another man!
