P.J. O’Rourke is a serious thinker.  But this is too good to pass up:

All politics stink. Even democracy stinks. Imagine if our clothes were selected by the majority of shoppers, which would be teenage girls. I’d be standing here with my bellybutton exposed.

No, P.J.  No, you wouldn’t.

And now for something completely different.  My brother writes:

A little while ago, Jenni Hargis, a former neighbor and total sweetheart, fulfilled a dream of a lifetime and met Ellen Degeneres. What I didn’t know: she danced on Ellen, and is now part of their contest for Dancer of the Week.

On this here blog, I don’t ask for much. But today, I’m demanding. Go now, and vote for Jenni. She’s Dancer #1.

A former neighbor, Jenni is a bright young lady with a rather remarkable story.  If anyone deserves to win, it’s her.  Go forth and vote.
And no, I will never link to the Ellen Degeneres show ever again.

(Serious blogging returns tomorrow.)
