BELTWAY TRAFFIC JAM

I had a luncheon meeting at the National Press Club, so had to wade into DC again. It’s actually a reasonably pleasant trip if one can make it, as I did, in off peak hours–leaving at noon and returning by 3:30.

On with the daily linkfest:

  • Steven Taylor has banned John Kerry from his comments section.
  • Matthew Yglesias asks why the Loretta Sanchez endorsement of Dean is getting less attention than Gore’s.
  • Kate is getting more like Rush Limbaugh every day.
  • Rob Tagorda has an interesting comparison of three treatments of a news story.
  • OTB is on the blogroll at Edwards Grassroots 2004.

  1. Believe me when I tell you, James, that I appreciate not just the link but also your commute. I used to live in east Los Angeles County and had to travel forty-five miles one way to my office on the westside. It took at least an hour-and-a-half. I had to leave home at 6:00am, however, to make the trip manageable.

    On my wife’s birthday two years ago, I left work at 3:45pm so that I can buy her a cake before dinner. There were several accidents, though. It took me three hours to get home. I literally sat through an entire Dodger game, and as luck would have it, my damn team lost.

  2. Here’s an easy answer for Matt: Who’s Loretta Sanchez?

    That’s the general response to that name.

    Al Gore has a certain amount of recognition, what with being a former VP and the guy who had the election “stolen” from him in 2000.
