  1. Now that's a very good find, Crapaud. I saw Jindal on "60 Minutes" tonight. I'm still not impressed, but Jim Amoss, the editor of the Times-Picayune, surely is. I don't get it.

  2. Mimi, its likely that the Jim Amoss interview was done BEFORE the big rebuttal on Tuesday evening, as was the interview with Jindal himself. Remember when 60 Minutes was the hardest hitting journalism in the nation? The worst nightmare of any corporatist in the 1970s was to hear in his waiting room, "We're here from 60 minutes." How we old folks have mellowed!

  3. Crapaud, I thought that part of the segment was filmed before the speech, too, but I was a bit surprised that Amoss thought that highly of Bobby even before the speech.

    Parts of the much-praised ethics bill were gutted. I kept thinking, "Who are they talking about? This is not the governor I know."

    CBS should put "60 Minutes" out of its misery. How old is Morley Safer anyway? OK, I Googled. He's 77, older than I am. At what age do they retire on that show?
