My friend Linda says that Mark Sanford is really lucky that Michael Jackson died. And Mrs. B adds that Farah Fawctt Major must be stamping her foot.
I read somewhere that one reason why Kissinger and Nixon wanted the opening to China was to distract attention from the fact that they'd just lost a war.
Update: My friend Joel John (oops, pardon!) says we are wrong about Farah. In fact, he says, she was lucky two ways--she was released from dreadful suffering, and she doesn't have to put up with all the Jackson hype.
