HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

May 7, 2007
From the Editor

John Turner


A study issued by the Indiana University Media Relations revealed that Bill O'Reilly frequently calls people names on his TV show, a thing he says he never does. O'Reilly responded immediately, saying the report was ridiculous and calling its authors lots of names.

We continue to await Monica Goodling's testimony before Congress. She has been granted immunity, for what, I'm not sure. Speculation continues to grow that she might spell out the White House's strategy for suppressing voting in Democratic districts, an action that was illegal before George Bush and his brain came on the scene and might, if Patrick Leahy has his way, become illegal again.

There's lots of discussion about who will be in Fred Thompson's cabinet should he become president. Jack Bauer is said to be a lock for Secretary of Defense and Jack McCoy is the front runner for Attorney General, though President Thompson will want him to stiffen up a bit. Jonas Blane will be the new National Security Advisor, adding not only an appropriate fascistic approach but racial balance as well. Gil Grissom may sneak in at Health and Human Services, though Thompson is reputed to believe he's a bit squishy. The biggest change will be the abolition of the State Department, seen as unnecessary in a post-9/11 world. When foreign actions are required we'll go in fast and hard, thus showing the world not to mess around with us and saving quite a bit of money as well.

By the time you read this, I'll be in Utah, observing some of nature's more radical productions. I'll take lots of pictures, some of which I'll post here once I get home. We'll have edition next week, if I can find wireless hookups in my Utah accommodations, which I have been assured I can. Since this is supposed to be a recreational and nature excursion, I may not get into big political discussions out West. But, who knows?

Whether I'm here or there, I'll welcome your comments. So, send them along so all your fellow readers can be set straight about national and world affairs.
