Larry, you’ve yanked me out of my slumbers. I happen to like Jennifer’s postings. I like her intensity and deep expertise and sharpness and perspicacity. Whenever I see such qualities I only wish she had many emulators and on many other fronts. Phil Klein is away this week, leaving Jennifer a freer political hand. But there are countless other topics of merit and the opportunity is there for any one of our contributors to weigh in and mix it up. My mind goes back to the intense discussion of Fed rates the other week, which for all I know set in motion last week’s ups and downs on Wall Street. I keep wondering when Howard Kurtz will address the press aspect of the Eliot Spitzer case. And how long will the New Republic enjoy a protected free ride from its confreres in the MSM? Finally, did anyone read the absolutely embarrassing apologia for Barry Bonds in last week’s New Yorker from none other than self-appointed baseball authority Roger Angell?
