"Slarrow" refers to the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" from Hamlet's soliloquy. Here are the chronicles of such darts and whatever attempt there may be to take arms against such a sea of troubles.

1994 All Over Again? Hah.

I've heard a lot of buzz that this election year will be like 1994 but in the reverse direction. But I'm not going to pay a single bit of attention to people who make those claims until they start doing the kind of thinking that Jay Cost does.

It seems that the more punditry we get (and I think it's fair to say that we're seeing a far more vigorous, diverse pundit class than ever before), the more we try to make every single day and every single issue politically monumental. But there's just not that much there. It's May; the country is just starting to move into summer as schools let out over the next several weeks. November is a cold season, and it's too early to ponder the cold season. (Forget about 2008; John Podhoretz is beating the bushes with a stop-Hillary book already, for crying out loud.)

It's butter scraped over too much bread. Sooner or later people in the biz are going to catch up to that fact.
