Wlady: HBO? Ok, my apologies for accusing you of spending extra bucks on Barbra. Watching her on HBO is permissible, like drinking French wine someone else has purchased (my scruples go only so far.) But my other objections stand: why, when ESPN is now broadcasting in high-def, can you take time for Babs? Please tell me you won’t do that again tonight. If you can’t make that promise, let me know and I’ll make an emergency delivery of “The Enforcer” or “Sudden Impact.” As necessary, Harry Callahan and I stand ready to make your day. Or evening.
As to Mizz O’Hara, I lost all patience with her after “The Quiet Man.” I remember “The Wind and the Lion”, when Sean Connery (who ever cast a Scot as an Arab brigand?) repeatedly told Mrs. Pedicaris (the historically-inaccurate character played by Candice Bergen) that she was a “lot of trouble.” Candice was worth it and Maureen wasn’t.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
