Oh look, Molly Ivins is still occasionally lucid. From the San Jose Mercury News editorial page, this teaser paragraph and link:
Here's to ordinary goodness -- and slight absurdity
Happy birthday, America! Two-hundred twenty-seven years old and still ready to boogie til we puke. What a great country. Another glorious year in the land of the free and the home of the brave, with only the usual idiocy attendant.
Isn't that supposed to be "attendant idiocy?" Whatever, I have better things to do than read the whole editorial and send her my corrections.
