I still love Chuck

Best sportswriter out there by far.
We just sort of watched it happen, and then we watched it get out
of control, and then we expressed shock without feeling a grain of surprise, and
then we tried to figure out how we were supposed to reconcile an alien reality
we unconsciously understood all along.

This would describe the Iraq War, torture, Valerie Plame, Jack Abrahmoff, Katrina response, the last 2 elections.
In November 2000, the United States held a presidential election, and nobody
knew who won, so we just kind of made up an outcome and tried to act like that
was normal. Less than a year later, airplanes flew into office buildings, and
everybody cried for two months. And then Enron went bankrupt, and the U.S.
started acting like a rogue state, and "The Simple Life" premiered, and gasoline
became unaffordable, and our Olympic basketball team lost to Puerto Rico, and we
reelected the same president we never really elected in the first place. Later,
there would be some especially devastating hurricanes and three Oscars for an
especially bad movie called "Crash."
Things, as they say, have been better.

That column deserves a Pulitzer for commentary.
