A New Leaderboard at the U.S. Open  —  There has been some turmoil yesterday on the leaderboard of the U.S. (Temperature) Open and there is a new leader.  —  A little unexpectedly, 1998 had a late bogey and 1934 had a late birdie.  (I thought that they were both in the clubhouse since the turmoil seemed to be in the 2000s.)

In A Three Minute Monologue, Matthews Gushes Over Bush's 'Great Neo-Conservative Mind'  —  Immediately following President Bush's press conference today, MSNBC's Chris Matthews spent three unbroken minutes fawning over the president's "powerful rendition" of his "philosophy" without uttering a single critical word.

Horses Mouth:
