You HAVE to read this column by Washington Post blogger Alexandra Petri

Petri is a favorite of mine; I read her regularly.  For those who aren’t familiar with her: Her blog columns are humorous ones about (mostly) politics, and of course these days mostly about the presidential election.

Suffice it to say that this column of hers today is not along those lines.

I’ll just say that this kind of thing is not entirely in the past, and leave it at that for the moment.

(The title of this post is also the “subject” title of the email I just sent to, well, several friends.)


PS: My heartfelt condolences to Ms. Petri on the death of her grandfather.  R.I.P., Editor Neal.
