William Buckley, Arthur Schlesinger, R.I.P.  A flavor of grudging respect.  No matter where you’ve chosen to park your backside, there is often ample reason to find honor and intelligence across the aisle.

The NY Times

reviews “Wild Hogs.”  After seeing the ad short on television, with the fake raven, I pretty much expected ‘dreadful.’  Read the italicized rating at the bottom of the article for how the reviewer really feels.  Still, I’ll go see it, because it was filmed around Madrid and other local spots ... and I’d like to know why ‘geek’ William H. Macy was working so hard on his biceps at Santa Fe Spa.

SF New Mexican:

Immigrants lying low as federal agents scour city.  I have no beef with the immigrants, just the builders who charge competitive rates for skilled labor, and pay these workers a pittance.  Ask your contractor if s/he uses immigrant workers, and where is the discount?

None of the thousands of media outlets that depend on AP called in asking for a Paris Hilton story. No one felt a newsworthy event had been ignored.” I thought I was wading through less muck.
