Seth and/or Ira write touchingly of Evian Gonzales, begining today's online editorial
, "Of the many we will think of this Thanksgiving, one will be the Cuban boy found this week on a boat off the coast of Florida." While I'll be otherwise occupied that day, I am presently thinking of the not wholly unrelated matter of a more unsightly specimen who was able to escape a "rickety vessel [and] managed to make it to freedom." That of course is Peggy Noonan, whom Seth and Ira assured us
would serve as "contributing editor of The New York Sun
and will write occasionally for the paper's op-ed page." Noonan has since gone AWOL
, thankfully carried away by a magic dolphin after jumping overboard Seth and Ira's sinking ideological ship.
Happy Thanksgiving, Seth and Ira

Adam DaiFallah continues to trumpet his now familiar monotone
, rewriting the same pseudo story and patrolling the same 1/1000 sq. meter of journalistic ground Seth and Ira assigned him last week. He continues to pursue a deservedly ignored "angle" to the developing Princess Haifa story, chasing after Patton Boggs, Bill Clinton's former counsel and partial owner of Qorvis Communications, a PR agency retained by the Saudis. In an illustration of how high evidenciary standards are at the Sun
, Mr. DaiFallah quotes famed Vienna Convention authority and "publisher of the online news forum Lucianne.com and radio talk show host Lucianne Goldberg, a battle-hardened veteran of the Monica controversy."
A regrettable addition to your clip file, Adam.

What am I
thankful for? Sure, I am thankful for the incompetence of the New York Sun
. But I am mainly thankful that I get to shut down for a few days---the family
and I are heading to spend the holiday with my wife’s family (her first visit since she
), and it will probably be difficult to get my hands on a computer
. Brother Grady
may see fit to put a little something up for you all, although he did tell me that he may be busy---he’s going to attempt to celebrate America’s Thanksgiving with a little kaka
done up turkey-style.
, one and all!
Seth and Ira again construct a 14 page-high cenotaph to stupidity, this time senselessly directing (the few) readers of their (again, few) online articles thusly:
Please see BUDGET, page 4
BUDGET continued from page 1
Brad Olson and I had formerly reckoned the Sun
's readership at 30, an admittedly generous figure thanks to our inclusion of the paper's editorial staff when tallying. Seems time for us to subtract a few.
