Occasional light verse, mostly political. If you're looking for a certain cold medicine, try here. But we can put you to sleep cheaper.

beautifully said (i.e. not ours)

This is neither ours nor poetry nor funny. It's just a quote from a Richard Cohen column in the Washington Post which we think is beautifully put. The topic is the revelation that John Roberts once took a pro bono case on behalf of a gay rights group opposing a Colorado law explicitly allowing discrimination against homosexuals.

"The spectacle of conservative groups and the White House rushing to assure their constituencies that Roberts is not -- really and truly -- a tolerant man is both repulsive and absurd. In the end, this tethering of conservatism to the lost cause of homophobia will earn the rebuke of history."

--Richard Cohen, The Washington Post, 9 August 2005, Page A17
