Here's some scary stuff, because while this woman is one of the few dumb enough to say it out loud, there are a whole lot of people in government who think exactly the same way . . .

Correction of the year so far, from The New York Times:
An obituary on Saturday about the guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a founder of the band Slayer, misspelled the name of one of the bands with which Slayer has toured. It is Megadeth, not Megadeath.

I've seen a lot of speculation today about whether this means the governor is getting serious about a presidential run:

The Garden State governor agreed to the operation at the urging of family and friends after turning 50 last September.
I wrote an "RIP, Doc Bowen" editorial for tomorrow's page that focused mostly on the property tax caps he muscled through the General Assembly in 1973.

The suicide rate for middle-aged men was 27.3 deaths per 100,000, while for women it was 8.1 deaths per 100,000.

The FBI put a woman, Joanne Chesimard (also known as Assata Shakur), on its Most Wanted Terrorists list for the first time in history Thursday.
