Late morning . . .

Yeah, we're late getting started today. The Monk is negotiating various personal stuff and Wongdoer is ooto, which I guessed meant out of the office.

For your quick mind vitamin satisfaction, check out these columns:

First, Max Boot asks Hosni Mubarak the same question about George W. Bush that Jules Winnfield asked sorrywhiteboy #1 in Pulp Fiction: "DOES HE LOOK . . . LIKE . . . A B*TCH?" If not, then what's taking Egypt so long to democratize?

Next, Robert Novak says the "be careful what you wish for" warning to the Democrats upon nominating Howard Dean as chairman of the DNC seems to have come true.

Third, Jeff Jacoby ensures an ugly avalanche of hate email by stating the truth:
. . . what disgraces Islam above all is the vast majority of the planet's Muslims saying nothing and doing nothing about the jihadist cancer eating away at their religion. It is Free Muslims Against Terrorism, a pro-democracy organization, calling on Muslims and Middle Easterners to ''converge on our nation's capital for a rally against terrorism" -- and having only 50 people show up.

Yes, Islam is disrespected. That will only change when throngs of passionate Muslims show up for rallies against terrorism, and when rabble-rousers trying to gin up a riot over a defiled Koran can't get the time of day.

Finally, read Mark Steyn's review of the original Star Wars. I saw Episode III last night/this morning and will post a review later today.
