• The grand jury interrogated Karl Rove, re: Valerie Plame-gate, for two hours Friday. He was told that he's not a target.

  • The Associated Press, in the story linked above, has a new version of the Joe Wilson quote:
    In a widely quoted remark, Wilson said after a speech in 2003 that it might be "fun to see Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs." Wilson has accused Rove of spreading word of the Novak column to reporters.
    The actual quote taken from a transcript:
    At the end of the day, it's of keen interest to me to see whether or not we can get Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs. And trust me, when I use that name, I measure my words."
    The AP version makes Wilson seem a jovial and playful man, joking about Rove being arrested. The actual version has a serious and vindictive Wilson, his beady eyes darting around the room, speaking in low tones.

  • Here's a quote. Washington Mayor Anthony Williams on Senator Mark "Run for the Hills" Dayton (D-Minnesota): "I'm literally scratching my head trying to figure out what frequency he's on."

    Ask Dan Rather. And Kenneth.

  • Why was Kerry's comment so despicable? Jimmy Akin deals with its many facets, and he kicks over the rock.

  • It rained at Fenway Park, and this evening's ALCS game was postponed until Monday. Pedro might be ready to pitch by then, so assuming that the Yanks win on Sunday, Pedro could lose the decisive game four.

    Boston has a problem with the "Killer B's": The Babe, Bucky, Buckner, Boone… and this year, the Broom. A sweep.

  • I just purchased a new Georg Muffat CD: Nobilis Juventus, Suites and Concertos. He's a baroque composer to whom I hadn't paid much attention until this year. One thing which makes this collection stand out is that it uses some percussion, which I haven't heard much of in the baroque. They use some of it in Renaissance music, and one of my favorite Medieval tunes makes great use of percussion: Chevalier Mult Estes Gueriz. (That one came from King Louis VII's Crusade.)
