Howard Dean is the new chairman of the Democratic Party. This can only be an improvement. Granted, almost anyone could improve on Terry McAuliffe, but I was a Dean supporter throughout the primaries.
RIP Arthur Miller. He was a great playwright, and a good man, never shy about speaking out for justice. I had the very good fortune to see Dustin Hoffman play Willy Loman on Broadway in 1984, one of the truly great theatre experiences of my life.
