Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard

And so it’s time to bask in reflected glory of some of our friends…
Ron Suskind’s new book (which I just bought) “The Way of the World” has just comes out, and though Candace mentions it prominently, she is too modest to mention that she is featured prominently in dozens of pages of Suskind’s latest work for her tireless dedication and service on behalf of her GTMO-detained clients.
And kudos to our friend Mad Kane who was just awarded the 2008 Robert Benchley Society Prize for Humor (the grand prize, none of this first runner-up stuff for our Mad)… the finals judge was none other than the great Bob Newhart.
To quote from the late, great Mr. Benchley (don’t ask me why I picked these): Most of the arguments to which I am party fall somewhat short of being impressive, owing to the fact that neither I nor my opponent knows what we are talking about and Tell us your phobias and we will tell you what you are afraid of.
To coin a phrase, indeed. And kudos, ladies.
