If I could meet five people alive today, Mark Steyn would be one of them. This guy is so good I'm not even jealous of his writing ability. Read today's offering and love it. A tease:
"In Saturday's Guardian, Charlie Brooker concluded his analysis of the presidential election thus: 'On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod's law dictates he'll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr - where are you now that we need you?'
Well, wherever they are, they're probably saying: 'Why bring us into it? When ol' Lee Harvey decided it was time for JFK to get assassinated, he didn't sit around whining, "John Wilkes Booth, where are you now that I need you?" Get off your butt and do it yourself, you big Euro-pussy.'"
