Theirs is a world far removed from mine. Heck, they are both far removed from reality, if truth be known, and that's what makes them so darn entertaining. I enjoy them immensely. They're funny.
That having been said, I'm really looking forward to this;
A Boldface Name Invites Others to Blog With HerYes, it will be a dull day when Arianna posts Vernon Jordan's musings to her site. What's he going to talk about? The women he and his great buddy Bill Clinton once had creepy sex with? And the day she provides us with what will become known as the Arthur Schlesinger blog rant, I'll be reading my next Clive Cussler novel. Sorry, Art. I thought you were dead.

LOS ANGELES, April 23 - Get ready for the next level in the blogosphere.
Arianna Huffington, the columnist and onetime candidate for governor of California, is about to move blogging from the realm of the anonymous individual to the realm of the celebrity collective.
She has lined up more than 250 of what she calls "the most creative minds" in the country to write a group blog that will range over topics from politics and entertainment to sports and religion. It is essentially a nonstop virtual talk show that will be part of a Web site that will also serve up breaking news around the clock. It is to be introduced May 9.
Among those signed up to contribute are Walter Cronkite, David Mamet, Nora Ephron, Warren Beatty, James Fallows, Vernon E. Jordan Jr., Maggie Gyllenhaal, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., Diane Keaton, Norman Mailer and Mortimer B. Zuckerman. (link)
But Walter Cronkite, whose ship left port long ago, is always good for a laugh. And Warren Beatty, whose politics died at about the same time as did "Splendor In The Grass" (starring my favorite actress of all time - Natalie Wood) is readable only because he is so passionate about Democrats and their chances of winning an election - somewhere - someday. And Norman Mailer. I'll bet he's been busting with a need for attention. Nobody's turned to him for his pithy insights regarding current events since the Bolsheviks defeated the Mensheviks. And he's so full of hatred - towards us. He'll be a hoot.
So I'm adding Ms. Huffington's website - to be called the Huffington Post (www.huffingtonpost.com) - to my list of Favorites. Expect to read a lot more from this bunch. It's going to be so much fun.
