I had an amusing converation a few weeks ago in Phoenix with someone from Caltech, who was complaining that he's always being accused by our mutual friend of not understanding art. After a long and frustrating conversation I was almost convinced she was right and the subject switched to baseball and Jane Leavy's biography of Sandy Koufax. Rich said it was good, and doubly interesting in that it was written by a Jewish woman about a Jewish man in the world of male and mostly gentile athletics. I asked him if he could reproduce all the subtleties of the book's language in his own words. He said no. I told him he understood art.

If Dear Leader decides to attack Iran or to make an active defense of an Israeli attack, the damage to American authority will be so massive as to almost make me think it was a good idea.
