Saturday Morning Musings


The End of The Anchorman Era

Dan Henninger writes with wonder and a hint of nostalgia about the old days when "everyone watched" Rather, Brokaw, and Jennings "because the Anchormen made it seem important. Back then, they commandeered events in a way that is no longer possible."

March Madness

What a terrific time of year. My own Utah Utes, led by Player of the Year candidate Andrew Bogut, are headed into the Round of 32 today, hoping for a mild upset over the Oklahoma Sooners. This is the 10th NCAA tournament in 11 years for the Utes, so it's quite a tradition in our house. My sons and I will be gathered around the TV, cheering every basket and agonizing over ever turnover. Despite whatever questions one might raise about college athletics, the NCAA Tournament has become a solid cultural tradition. Most of all, it's a heck of a lot of fun. Go Utes!

Andrew Bogut, soon to be an NBA lottery pick

In case you missed Charles Krauthammer's piece yesterday, here it is.

And Byron York gives us a preview of the coming judicial confirmation battles.

Go Utes, indeed. And now that my brackets are suitable only for lining the birdcage, go Pacific, Bucknell, UW-Milwaukee, UAB, and even--despite Howard Dean--Vermont!

Lowell, I didn't go to O.U. but I was born in Oklahoma. State law requires anyone born in the state to root for the Sooners. It's all us Okies have on a national scale! Go Sooners! Wb

Wagonboy, I understand. I just hope you don't feel too bad about the outcome! ;-)
