The term "slack-jawed incredulity" comes to mind after reading this Thomas Friedman column in the NYT.
He hasn't watched one second of the 9/11 hearings because he's tired of bad news. Wah, wah, wah. The poor put upon life of a busy columnist. I know that producing these things isn't easy - but there are many, many worse jobs than having to immerse yourself in bad news so you can spin it your way and sell it to the millions of NYT readers in the world.
There's a few other choice nuggets in this column that kinda make my eyes roll back in my head - but that's for you to discover. What's your favorite of Mr. Friedman's dreams and why?
Of course, at the end of the day, why should we be surprised that he doesn't watch the 9/11 hearings? The pres doesn't watch any TV either and look what a great job he's doing.
