Impressions

I finally got around to seeing Charlie Rose’s interview with Ariana Huffington. I was very underwhelmed. Somehow she missed the often expert nature of the commentary. Also she neglected to mention the speed that information is processed, but I guess one shouldn’t expect too much from a 15 minute interview.

Speaking of the Huffington Post, I read Jim Lampley’s current rambling of

Some esitmates for friendly fire casualties in Viet Nam exceeded forty percent. So what happened to Tillman, sadly, isn’t very surprising. Unfortunately, the implication that the Pentagon fudged the information to boost the heroism impact of Tillman’s sacrifice isn’t very surprising either. Tillman’s parents deserve bravery citations for telling the truth about their feelings.

Two things of note:

  1. Why do they have no spell check on that blog? Note the use of “esitmates”.
  2. The phrase “Some esitmates for friendly fire casualties in Viet Nam exceeded forty percent. So what happened to Tillman, sadly, isn’t very surprising” is the lamest phrasing I’ve heard in months. Why not cite the sources? Why go out of your way to appear weasely?
