a couple of unrelated thoughts

Two recent columns struck a chord with me. First, Maureen Dowd has been writing columns almost completely free of snarkiness lately.

Sounds like basic stuff until you remember the permanent smirk of our former de facto President.

And Richard Cohen made an interesting observation about how people like Larry Summers and David Axelrod have sacrificed millions in income to work for the Obama Administration. People did the same in the Bush regime too, although some of them never really left their lobbying jobs when they went to dismantle environmental protections on behalf of the American people...
