Random Thoughts

Courtesy of Monday's Best of the Web Today, this New York Times headline:

Bush, at a Commencement, Hails 'Honor' of U. S. Troops in Iraq

Absolutely disgusting (but highly illustrative of the Times' opinion) use of scare quotes.

I hear "Super Size Me" is getting rave reviews at Cannes. From what I gather it's a documentary about Michael Moore, but you might want to check with someone on that.

And should I feel bad, or is it just representative of my age, that upon hearing of Tony Randall's death, the first thing I thought of was this. Homer on deceased trucker Red Barclay: "He called me greenhorn. I called him Tony Randall. It's a thing we had."
