A couple of comments about recent goings on:
* So it turns out John Edwards is a sleazy liar, which is not really all that shocking. What is shocking is that the only one telling the truth is this sordid affair was the National Enquirer.
* Russian troops are invading Georgia. I just hope they don't burn Atlanta.
* The Olympics are underway, which means our sense of national pride will hinge on things like whether or not some muscle-bound guy can throw a lead ball farther than some other muscle-bound guy.
