  1. Damn, I need to write a book calling firemen right-wing fascists who used 9-11 to shamelessly promote their profession or something. Not that I believe that, but damn.

  2. Well, I’ve long believed that Ann hasn’t seriously believed anything she’s written since High Crimes and Misdemeanors. As for betting, you can pretty much bet on anything in existence now including “Will the next word in the national spelling bee have the letter E in it?”
