Lemonade, a Baby Gorilla & a D.C. Tornado
Sitting in a little pink lawn chair, Poobah [a fire-eating dwarf] looks run-down. It is nearly 100 degrees, the air as sticky as lemonade. (Charlie LeDuff in today’s New York Times).
He's like a little heating blanket. (Quote on macon.com by “surrogate mom” about baby gorilla).
The spirited exchanges on the Sunday morning talk shows – a staple of weekend life for the political elite here, especially on the Sunday after an election that blew through Washington like a tornado – came at a delicate moment for the White House on Iraq. (New York Times, page one).
