I worry a lot about how quickly stories move from the front page to the trash. The one I was thinking about today was the IG Report on Douglas Feith.

But the other reason to keep Feith on the front page is that he is a self-justifier who can’t keep his foot out of his mouth [and I really like my book cover graphic].
I was about to write a post – something like, "What happened to the Douglas Feith story?" But then I hear the "you’ve got mail" ding.
