"I think of Soltan as the Maureen Dowd of the blogosphere,
except that Maureen Dowd is kind of a wrecking ball of a writer,
and Soltan isn't. For the life of me, I can't figure out her
politics, but she's pretty fabulous, so who gives a damn?"

PS: Post Preview: I'm working on a post about Camille Paglia's talk at GW, and one on the Deeper Meanings of the Duke Disaster. Ne quittez pas.
