Every day I tell myself that the hiatus is over. Then I keep going about my business, trying to maintain a sane lifestyle while taking care of various business and chores around the house, which now include keeping the grass cut and the garden maintained.

As for the Newsweek debacle, Kathleen Parker suggests conservatives take the high road. Fair enough. Remember, this is the same magazine who called George H.W. Bush, World War II veteran, Yale varsity baseball player and 80-year-old skydiver a wimp 15 years ago. Shows you what they know. I can probably count the number of times on one hand I've picked up a copy of Newsweek in that time. It's an irrelevent publication in my mind.

People are also pointing out that Michael Isikoff is the same guy who broke the Clinton-Lewinsky story. Right. But what happened? Newsweek sat on the story as long as it could before the competition started getting wind of it.

I just have to ask: Why the desperation on the part of the mainstream media? What are they hoping to accomplish?
