Pow, Pow, Pow: I'm not going to criticize John McCain because he was a prisoner of war. | Political Animal by Brian Morton

Always The Best: I'm a positive person, you know? I really don't like to complain much, so look, I'm just stating a fact here: My Column only runs Every Other Week in a Newspaper that comes out Every Week, and in two weeks, this here paper and the enormo-gigantical Web Site it has propagated will be jammed full, crammed full, of my favorite-est episode of the year, the Best of Baltimore, baby, all kinds of blurbs about what is the Best, like: Hamburger, Lecture Series, Band, Artist, Place to Eat a Taco, Shoes, Web Sites, Clothing, Fancy Restaurant, Actor, Actress, Flowers, Lingerie, Motorcycle Parts, Deli, Politician, Pit Beef, Meatball, Car Wash, Poetry, Radio Station, Beer, Pie, Vegetarian Restaurant, Dry Cleaner, Haircut, Teevee News Anchor, Yarn, Jewelry, and even Free Stuff, man, it's totally everything left in and nothing left out of all the great stuff you would ever wanna see, do, or eat in Baltimore, USA, except for my fucking Column, which is running this Every-Other-Week, and then skipping Next week, because it's an Other Week, and then when it's supposed to run again on the Every-Other, I get Repressed, Censored, and Stifled outta the Best Issue of Baltimore's Free Arts and Entertainment and News and Place to Get a Hot Dog Alternative Weekly. Some people get mad at Best Of, a lotta times because their particular Thing they think is The Best didn't get named as The Best, and it's too late for this year, but if you have something that didn't get Best Of'd, I think you should do this: Step 1. | Mr. Wrong by Joe MacLeod
