Good article again from Frank Rich at the NY Times; also a lovely, if somewhat vicious, op-ed piece from the ever-irascible Maureen Dowd.

Oh, heck, I just remembered I should be writing a review instead of playing around on LJ. My brain doesn't seem to be working this afternoon, but I really ought to do it tonight so I don't have to write it in a great hurry tomorrow afternoon. I should have done it last weekend.

I just ate half a pint of Dove ice cream, and I enjoyed it. So there, minor guilt feelings.
