Because I delayed my departure from Cincinnati (so I could have a few extra minute talking to my Dad and so I could watch my nephew’s Tae-kwon-do practice–he won the “floppy fish” exercise), I did not get any news today until I checked my text messages while dining with a reader just outside of Cleveland.
From him, I learned what the rest of the world already knew, “After 50 years of her left wing babbling, Helen Thomas is gone.”
Later, caught this on Instapundit:
MARK STEY[N] ON HELEN THOMAS: “A guy with a flip camera just took out one of the most storied names in American journalism. Presumably US newspaper managements have been assured by Obama, Pelosi, Frank et al that that bailout’s a-comin’ any day now. The alternative is that they’re inept timeserving mediocrities too dullwitted even to know they’re going over the falls.”
And now that I’ve posted on this, albeit a tad perfunctorily, I trust our readers to chime in with commentary appropriate for the occasion.
