AutoPundit Flap Grows
BLOG BUSINESS IS GOOD
. It begins to appear that the new blog elite
may be just as humorless and self-important as the MSM stars they are
seeking to replace. The erstwhile affable Glenn Reynolds refused to
acknowledge the arrival
except for one
cryptic and linkless(!) entry about someone impersonating
him. Of course, this may relate to something altogether different, but
if it does, then InstaPundit seems to be ducking the issue.
The good news is that stonewalling doesn't work in the blogosphere.
is all over the story. And in our humble opinion, the
highest profile bloggers are dreaming if they think they're immune to a
bit of fun at their expense. Something tells us Glenn Reynolds isn't
the only blog star who's going to pay this very small price of
celebrity. Stay tuned.

It has been awhile, but I hope you've been watching the Masters this year. With
all the weather delays it has been a struggle, but Tiger Woods turned in a 66 for
his second round yesterday and a 31 for the first nine holes of his third round
before play was called for darkness.
This morning he closed out his third round at 65. And leads the field with -11.
Chris DiMarco is in second at -8.
It should be worth the time to take a look at the final round today.

There was once a Father who had Two Children
Does anyone out there still think President George W. Bush is stupid?
Usually, that would be all we wrote, allowing you, dear reader, to fill in the rest. However, sometimes
people write in and don't get it, so we'll expand -- just a bit. Linger over this picture for a little
longer than usual. There they are, President Clinton and President George H. W. Bush kneeling next to the
Pope's body. They've been appearing all over the place raising public awareness and coordinating
relief efforts for the tsunami victims and now they've traveled to Rome together.
President Clinton is the most powerful voice the Democrats have and he is constantly seen with the President's
father. Now he is seen kneeling with the President's father. Throw in the fact that President Clinton's
past father figures have been a bit deficient and you can catch a glimpse of the brilliance of our
President. See? Funny.
Also, you could hold your cursor over the image and get a bit more of the humor. Yet again, there is a lack
of symmetry in this photo (meaning, someone is missing that would balance the shot) which is also very
funny, the more you think about it.
It does seem like something, or more likely, someone has caught President Clinton's eye in the balcony.
We imagine this will be discussed quietly at another time.
Some days, the jokes just write themselves.
The writer Saul
He wrote beautifully
writing when he felt he had nothing more to add, and if this
is to be believed, he arrived finally at happiness.
Janis Freedman eventually began working
part-time as Bellow's secretary and, several years after I graduated,
they stunned everyone by getting married.
He was more than four decades older than
she, and you only need read the vicious portraits of his ex-wives in
his novels to see how unsuccessful he had been at the marriage game.
But this unconventional union was the one
that finally took. In his final book, Bellow paints a blissful portrait
of his marriage to Janis, who gave birth five years ago to his only
Bellow's great subject as a novelist was
the human yearning for love and meaning. It turned out that, like the
protagonist of his great 1970 novel "Mr. Sammler's Planet," Bellow had
to wait until his 70s until he could find the love and meaning in his
own life that had so long eluded him.
These are rare achievements for twentieth century writers.
Congratulations, Mr. Bellow, and Godspeed.
