New Yorker Update

The promised New Yorker article that everyone's waiting for hasn't yet been posted in full text on the New Yorker's web site. Not yet, anyway, although sooner or later someone's going to do it, copyrighted or not.

But Washington Note has extensive excerpts -- useful for anyone who's not accustomed to reading the New Yorker's typically lengthy and absorbing feature articles. (Here's a pitch: subscribe to the New Yorker. It really is the "best magazine in the world.")

Meanwhile, you can test your memory at Paul Salanky's Return of the Bush Quiz in the often humorous "Shouts & Murmurs" department. And the world's best baseball writer, Roger Angell, has an uncharacteristically short article titled White Sox Nation in which he contemplates the central truth of baseball: most of the fun is in "getting over it."

Could this be true of politics, too?
