Two funny comments

In the usually abominable "Rant" of Sunday, 1 August, is this: "Overheard while giving out free U.S. Constitutions at Pops in the Park: A woman replied 'No Thanks, I'm a Democrat.' "

Almost as funny, if it weren't so sad: The TFP apparently has a new executive editor. His name is J. Todd Foster. "And I will share with you a pledge I made July 3 ...: We will give the news impartially, without fear or favor ..."

Yep, we've been seeing that same joke for many decades now. Originally it was on the Times, and was less true than even now.

OK, Mr. Foster is new. We'll give him a chance, but we're not holding our breath.
