I just saw Helen Thomas on CSPAN answering questions at a book reading. First of all, I had no idea that she writes a column these days. I figured she’d retire after five decades in the White House press corpse. Secondly, I think it’s amazing that she is doing so well given her advanced age (she was born in 1920). Anyway, it’s pretty cool to see an old lady excoriate John Ashcroft before an audience of more old ladies.
