On MetaFilter, someone posted a link to an amazing Transformers site. (When I was wee I had a Grimlock. Me Grimlock am angry!) Last week, we got a David Broder column in favor of subsidizing political ads. (Broder will be appearing at the Brody Public Policy Forum at the University of Maryland in a few weeks; until then, I’ll have to mull over this attack on his perceived tunnel vision as regards the supremacy of the political process. A cheery Post article on Sunday began "President Bush is quietly building the most conservative administration in modern times…", and thousands more sheep and cattle have been killed in England in an attempt to slow the spread of hoof-and-mouth disease. On the other hand, Maryland’s in the Final Four and — say what you will about the Oscars — this year the Miramax PR machine was finally unsuccessful, so one can’t be too dour. Can one?
