Hello, Dahlia

There are many reasons to stay away from Slate (Krugman -stalker Micky Kaus comes to mind as well as Timothy Noah), but there are also a couple of good reasons to visit.

Jacob Weisberg’s Bushism’s is a must. Here’s today’s:

“Let me tell you my thoughts about tax relief. When your economy is kind of ooching along, it’s important to let people have more of their own money.”—Boston, Oct. 4, 2002

But the best reason is for Dahlia Lithwick’s coverage of the Supreme Court. Lithwick cuts to the chase and provides a brilliant synopsis of their daily-doings (and not-doings) without the pomposity of a James Kirkpatrick. That, and her subversive snarks about the Justices make it time well spent. It’s just nice to read a knowledgable writer who has respect for the law, but less for the Justices who interpret it.
