Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," out of town until Friday!
Well, we've lost 4,000 Americans in a battle over crude oil. But be prepared, gentle readers, especially if you're under the age of 25.

Read my article in The Smart Set and ask yourself if you can't see a whole new reason for warfare on the horizon.
Back to meaningless laughter on Friday! Christopher Hitchens says women don't know how to be funny. I say he ought to see me trying to put washer fluid in my car, and he'd change his mind.
