Of pies and politics

Today's edition of the free daily Metro New York has an editorial called "Nothing wrong with a little pie in the face" (page 10), written by Robin Cook: the article is available online as an Acrobat PDF file (warning- it's a big file).

Admittedly, I'm a little biased since I'm her boyfriend but it's a good, funny read, noting the trend of nailing conservative speakers with confectionery items when they give public lectures. Usually, these opinionists live in their little cocoons of their talk shows or pre-screened audiences for book tours so it's nice to see that they can still get some feedback that isn't always fawning. The only thing that I would add to her article is that the people who nail pundits with pies should consider supporting a more responsible diet: in addition to pies, they should including a salad, some bread, vegetables, etc.. to set a good example.
