Demonstrating my perfect comedic timing yesterday, I posted a very serious, unfunny piece about the National Intelligence Estimate, of all things, just as was awarding me the “ROTUS Award: You Make Me Laugh.”

  It was awfully sweet of her to do that, even if I don’t deserve it. In fact everything I write here is deadly serious. I don’t understand why anyone is laughing. This is intended, anyway, to be a dull, boring, series of self absorbed ramblings about whatever is on my mind, which is mostly, of course, me.

Tenkyou berrymuch as my friend Latke used to say. And now I will do the Elvis Presley. . .
