Dowd on Safire

What can I say, I miss William Safire. I was just thinking of him not more than four days ago and then he died. I certainly didn’t agree with every position the conservative took, but I respected the man. Maureen Dowd knew Safire and respected him too. Here’s her piece on Mr. Safire.

TIME’s cover story with Glenn Beck is a grotesque attempt at journalism. The magazine is hoping to ride Beck’s coattails in pandering to right-wing extremists.
