Quin: last night’s U.S. Open match-up was unbelievable. To go back and forth in the fifth set between deuce almost every game (I counted close to 15 in one game) was true agony, especially knowing that Agassi could have easily destroyed and ended the match when Baghdatis’ leg cramps set in. Agassi demonstrated (along with questioning the ref on a call) that he has become a true gentleman in his older age (remember the good ol’ days of yelping and bandanas). Perhaps it is the love of a good woman (isn’t that always the way really) that is the cause. Thanks Steffi.
But my favorite part of the match was the interview afterward between Agassi and John McEnroe. Mr. Obvious noted that in order for Agassi (age 36) to win the big enchilada he has to win five more matches, or in other words, conquer five more youngsters. Whatta doll.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
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?
