*Somebody new has been reading the news instead of John Clark on Kingston Community Radio and he hasn't gotten the word: If you're on radio or TV and stealing stuff from the morning papers (ours and others), at least say, "according to the Daily Freeman (or whatever)" instead of trying to make listeners think you did the legwork yourself.
*I'm not a fan of Chris Matthews' overbearing questioning style (quite the contrary; he hardly lets his guests get in a word edge wise), but I do agree with his analysis of Barack Obama after last night's press conference: This is a president who strives for greatness. His moment is now. Issues like health care reform and the environment can't be put off any longer. That means there'll be bills to pay, short- and long-term. But if not now, when?
