From the Bill Simmons mailbag

Q: How hilarious would it be if President Bush pardoned O.J.???!!! I just think that would be a great ending to a terrible presidency! He'd go out with a bang.-- Gian Gonz, Austin, Texas

SG: This idea slayed me for some reason -- not the premise as much as how everyone would react to the news. I think it would make Bill Maher self-combust. He'd just explode like a hot-air balloon.

Pardon for O.J. might, might, just overcome my memories of the shoe throwing incident. Did you happen to hear Bill Lee's critique of the thrower's move to the plate on NPR's "wait wait, don't tell me last weekend"? I'm expecting the sox to make an offer as soon as he makes bail.
By the by, if you are considering a visit to the zoo or wild animal park in San Diego, give me a call at 757.256.6600 I can round up some passes. Mark

Didn't hear that, but I remember getting and reading Bill Lee's book when I was in junior high, and liking it. He's quite a character.

Will do on the passes, thanks.

It's about as hilarious as Bush converting from idiotic hick hunter to idiotic tree (or rather coral) hugger and designating a 'monument' to his edification.

In twenty years when your Alex and my Alex want to go scuba diving in the Marianas, and it is indeed more lively than the bath tub, your objection will be duly noted.
