As much as I enjoy reading Maureen Dowd and appreciate her insights and opinions, today’s column is pure filler. Every once in a while her column will reek of that “synergy” thing they trumpeted a decade ago when media conglomerates were swallowing up other entertainment behemoths and cross-pollination ran rampant. Our Maureen sometimes plugs books or movies by people whom one suspects are good buddies. But this column today? I dunno. One can picture her typing away with one eye on the word counter, her breath coming in shallow gasps as it approaches the one-thousand mark.
Shameless! Shocking! How anyone could write a column about nothing just to have something to post is beyond me.
