Pinter Wins Nobel...

...for his plays, of course. But he easily deserved it just for these two devastating lines:

Dear President Bush,

I'm sure you'll be having a nice little tea party with your fellow war criminal, Tony Blair. Please wash the cucumber sandwiches down with a glass of blood, with my compliments.

Harold Pinter

Thanks...with a viewpoint like his, I wonder how many pages Pinter's FBI file runs. Probably well into the hundreds, at least.

Damn, I want my own FBI file. My wife Julie thinks they probably have a file on her, thanks to having a Marxist radical for an uncle. I'm jealous.
