  • Wow. Last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner must have been the fiasco of fiascos. Even the NYT and CNN are decrying the nasty attacks comedian Michelle Wolf made against Trump (who wasn’t there) and Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who was).
  • The inimitable Scott Greenfield slams it to those regressive fools who are cutting their own (and civilization’s) throat by dismissing free speech as nothing but a right-wing dog whistle.
  • Two on Alfie Evans: where is Jimmy Kimmel’s voice now; and Britain’s new Berlin Wall. 27 Comments
  • Contemplating my mortality

    Oy. That sounds melodramatic. But there’s no way around it. For the last week I’ve been contemplating my mortality. I’m not quite well. I’m not quite sick, either, but I haven’t been quite well for nearly two years. It’s taken me this long to add all the little things up and start to speculate (and finally, to take up that dangerous instrument, the keyboard, to learn what I could learn). Damn, it pains and irritates me to say that. I’ve always had an iron immune system and robust health. But there comes a time … Anyhow, about 18 months ago…
