If nothing else, I just have to be tickled that the war (and CBS) has brought us this quote:

"History... is a lot like pornography"

Also like pornography, you tend to watch it even when it gets tedious and repetitive, like the interminable statue takedown yesterday morning.

My favorite item from yesterday's "historic" broadcasts came during an interview on CNBC with the usual Arabic professor from a Florida university you never heard of and the pissed-of reporter from an Arabic newspaper. As they discussed the dismayed reaction of the Middle Eastern media to the events of the day, the caption under the split screen read, "World Reax". Spelling reform comes at last to cable.

Excellent! Sorry I missed that. I've actually not been watching the constant news (and I use the term loosely). I found it a much better use of my time to catch up at random points during the day.

Okay, now I'm looking for the "1337 4ses 0wNz y0uR b@Ghd@ddy!" subtitles. Take bets on how long?
