WAR AND INTELLIGENCE….Have you noticed how the war with Iraq has a magical effect on IQ and leadership abilities? Tony Blair, who is somewhere to the left of Bill Clinton and a bit shifty besides, is suddenly hailed as a hero and rock solid ally by conservatives who would have derided him as a weak, pitiful, grasping lefty just a couple of years ago. The transformation has been magical.

And those Hollywood actors ? well, it’s sad to see gruff, smart Lou Grant morph into dimwitted patsy Ed Asner, isn’t it?
