You Gotta Have Friends

I just want to personally thank my friends who saved me from making a fool of myself by unconditionally supporting Judith Miller when she went to jail "to protect her First Amendment rights." I mean, I almost bought the T-shirt! So, thanks to Doug, Logan, and Tom for saving me from my self.

Here's a fairly definitive wrap-up of Ms. Miller's shameful behavior made of her own cronyism. Judy's been put on an open-ended leave of absence from the NY Times. Hopefully she'll remember the havoc she caused when she's writing out that income tax check for the rest of her life to pay off the unbelievable war debt we've accumulated. There isn't enough remorse in the world to ease the pain of those 2000 (or more) families who've lost loved ones. Jesus, how does she sleep at night?

Holy crap. I just read that story. What an embarassment all around. Your blog is a must-read lately, way to go, girl!

By the way I moved my blog to http://annthrope.blogspot.com/. Ann Thrope is an Internet pseudonym I use from time to time. Change your links when you get a chance.

We should hang out soon -- got you guys a couple of gifts in Japan. I'll be in SF and LA until next Saturday night. Talk to you soon! -kp
