Nothing much today. I recalled and located this, however, and felt it oddly apropos to our present moment. Enjoy.
As a connoiseur (sp) of the absurd, I thought you might enjoy this:"The pictures of Jose Padilla being led to the dentist in leg shackles and blackout goggles have provoked outrage and disgust and bafflement. Why the goggles? What's the point?"[Ann] Althouse has an answer:" 'Perhaps there is a fear that he will communicate in code by blinking.'"And upon being informed that this is, in fact, completely absurd, she becomes characteristically petulant:" 'I'm not saying Padilla deserves to be treated the way he has over the years, but I am responding to the assertion that there is absolutely no conceivable reason for blindfolding him. Plainly, I have refuted that.'"Plainly. She was blinking when she typed it."http://whiskeyfire.typepad.com/whiskey_fire/2006/12/i_will_be_etern.htmlWas Hitler really more introspective than our own Dear Leader?
