Achenblog: June 26, 2005 - July 2, 2005

Reasonably Well Paid Pat

  Did everyone notice that Pat the Perfect dropped by the blog the other day? This was the greatest honor the blog has received since the day we got that link from the Barry blog. Pat the Perfect normally hangs...

Tom Cruise on Aliens

    Tom Cruise was asked by a German publication if he believes in aliens. Of course he does! That's like asking Paul Prudhomme if he believes in butter.     Cruise said: "Yes, of course. Are you really so...

Hydrant Marking on the Blog

     As you know, next week I'm gone, and indeed, I hope to spend as little time as possible this summer hanging around this blogohedron. Next week my colleague Marc Fisher will handle the blog on Tuesday and Wednesday,...

Steve Jobs Finds Love

    Went to a dinner party last night and in betwixt the usual Iraq and '08 jabber (federalize Iraqi governance? more power to Kurds? McCain-Jeb ticket for GOP primaries?) and the almost ritualized over-the-top praise of the crab cakes...

Iraq: A Schedule Instead of a Battle Plan

    The other day at a social event I found myself talking to an Administration official about the war. He didn't mention anything about combat, or anything that might be defined as "military action." No, he talked about The...

First Tigger, Then Piglet -- Who's Next?

    Paul Winchell, the voice of Tigger, died last Friday, and today we learned of the death of John Fiedler, the voice of Piglet. Coincidence?? I don't think so. It's just too suspicious -- like last June, when Ronald...

Golfing With Woodward

From my Sunday "Rough Draft" column:     One day some years ago I somehow found myself playing golf with Bob Woodward. It's just one of those things that can happen in Washington without warning. Your first thought when you...

Grammar question

Yesterday I pounded out the following:     "If some enterprising journalist out there can find a third bullet item, that'd be enough for a major trend story. You always need three items. Four is unnecessary, two isn't enough."  ...

Psychiatry Roulette

     My editor said my post yesterday about psychiatry was a bit obtuse in parts. Like, what did I actually THINK about psychiatric medication? Was I pro or con? The answer is, once a blogger starts letting people know...

Does Psychiatry Need Therapy?

    Tom Cruise gets weirdly angry with Matt Lauer, ripping Brooke Shields and the profession of psychiatry, and then we read on the front page of The Post a powerful story about psychiatry's overly biological and Eurocentric approach to...
