. . . and Rent-a-Mob is baying for someone’s blood already. What I don’t understand is, why these parents went public in the first place. It really is nobody’s business but their own.

Funny, innit?

I seem to remember, looking back to when I lived in England lo these many years ago, that British teenagers were always pretty inarticulate, especially compared to their Irish counterparts. Alas for the good old days, when elocution lessons were part of the core curriculum in most schools. Today, even The Queen has become relatively common.

Who knew hot air was toxic?

I love reading Christopher Hitchens’ diatribes, especially when he goes off on one of his pet hates. Like his evisceration of George Galloway, who is a scumbag of the finest water. I disagree profoundly with almost everything Hitchens has penned in support of George and Rummy’s excellent adventure in Iraq, but I think this is one of the finest pieces he has ever written. It captures exactly the revulsion I felt, when reading about Saddam Hussein’s shambolic execution and its inevitable aftermath.

Another crappy politician who was sanctified by 9/11. Without Osama Bin Laden and his merry bunch of terrorists, Guiliani would be remembered only for his lousy comb-over and his taste in mistresses.
