Art Pottery, Politics and Food
Tuesday, March 25, 2003
I sometimes feel that I am as cynical as a human being can get, but, this phrase within the final sentence of this morning's Nicholas Kristof column in the New York Times shocked me:

But since the Bush administration was willing to bring in a Hollywood producer to design a $250,000 set for the Central Command briefings, it might at least remind officials that we are not invading Eye-rack, but Ee-rack.

When I first saw this "set" I remember thinking, "Wow, where's Captain Kirk?" Try counting up those $9,000 a pop flat plasma TV screens for a depressing exercise. I'd rather there be no "Hollywood set" and fewer military families on Food Stamps.
