Well, when I saw that, I thought to myself, Taranto hasn't seen anything yet, and pointed him to my post and the related Dean blog post on Christmas Day. Today's […]

Return of the King

I finally got a chance to see final installment of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you haven't seen it yet, you should make it a point to see it. The three-plus hours are well spent. My favorite line of this movie is from Gimli, following up on the extended DVD edition of […]

I've never really tried this, but if it works for Howard Dean, maybe it'll work for me. See, on Dean's blog, he has a big long post where every link takes you to his contribute page -- and there are nine of them. So, for those of you who are recovering from all of that […]
