: As I walked through the cold World Trade Center PATH station today, looking at all the huge pictures of New York scenes, I wondered why there isn’t a picture of the World Trade Center towers. We should not act as if we are ashamed of our towers; we should flaunt them. Port Authority: Put up a big, proud picture of our towers.

Allow me to brag
: Candice Bergen is on Will & Grace tomorrow.

One of my prouder moments!

The democracy doctrine
: Matthew Stinson points to a Jonah Goldberg column that endorses an idea I discussed a few weeks ago: The democracy doctrine. Goldberg suggests a League of Democracies would compete with the U.N. I prefer to think we’d lead.
