Dovish on Chablis

I refer to this comment in the Washington Note:

"You write, 'first of all, editorialists should stop referring to everyone who OPPOSES THE IRAQ WAR as 'anti-war'.

This is not a battle between pacifists and hawks within progressive circles.' But surely the LAT chooses its words EXTREMELY CAREFULLY. The LAT editors fully intended to refer to Iraq war opponents as anti-war. You seem to think that these verbal inaccuracies can be settled between friends, over a good chablis and brie, after which we'll get accurately phrased LAT editorials. Are you really such a fool?"


First of all I find this rude since Steve Clemons is trying to fight the good fight; left-wing ultramontanes are irritating me these days for some reason. But mostly I want to save Chablis from this calumny. Good Chablis is awesome, even to me, a cocktail drinker. The writer does himself in with this carelessness.

Had he used Chardonnay, however, I would have been with him. I hate Chardonnay.

the problem still exists.

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your website. It appears like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen before.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of
your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
