Quote of the Day
"I ask myself if the world in which I have worked for so many decades -- the intersecting and overlapping world of the news media, publishing, the academy, and the think-tank industry -- is even imaginable without the presence of liberal American Jews. The answer is plainly no. Moreover, I can't think of any other 'minority' of which this is remotely true. (Rick Sanchez) didn't descend into saying that there was Jewish control of the media, but he did imply that liberalism was linked to a single ethnicity... there is nothing criminal about this."
-- Christopher Hitchens, defending Rick Sanchez
You know, more than anything else, now I know Sanchez has arrived. What I'd give to have Christopher Hitchens even know who the hell I was, much less be an advocate for me.
