Who Won? What Happened to My Girl? Edition

The Op-Ed section of the Times has expanded for Sundays, but apparently there is no room for my girl, Maureen Dowd. The new Sunday columnists are Frank Rich, David Brooks and Nicholas Kristof, all of whom are just aight. Dowd was actually one of my favorite parts of the Sunday paper. She hates everything, which proves a great counterbalance for Thomas L. Friedman who is daily creeping into the realm of the batshit insane. She's also my favorite part of the local Thursday paper because they run a photo.

Also, the Times reports today that when straight men want to share a meal it can't be brunch and they can't share a bottle of wine. That would be gay. This begs the questions, how did I get hooked up with such a moron gender?

  • What's up with Jennifer 8 Lee, is the 8 a cultural deal the Dodger missed?

    Anyway, the whole article is based on "Honi soit qui may y pense" of people who fear their identity or persona. And, it took too long to read.

  • 34 was all over that back when I used to actually post stuff on my blog. Check out this story, mysterious Dodger!

    Also, Frank Rich's column is usually a good read, if perhaps just a collection of random media outrages sewn together.

    And I had just had two meals out, one of them Thai, with Scotter the day before that Sunday Styles thing came out. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
