Lights, high and low

Submitted for your consideration, the following highlights of the day in no particular order. In the category of “We hardly knew ye,” the New York Daily News has the rest of the story on Bernard Kerik, with a surprise appearance by Judith Regan: “Now his double affair laid bare.” Oh what a web we weave…
On a related note, the New York Post helps us remember how we came to loathe President Bush’s predecessor: “City, Fed probes eye Pardongate billionaire as ‘major player’ in Saddam’s scam.”
John Fund meditates on the prospects of the blogosphere in light of events in South Dakota in an excellent piece posted on OpinionJournal: “How Daschle got blogged.”
Since he broke his hip, Robert Novak has done the best reporting he has done in years. I don’t want to believe the gist of his column today: “Bush’s closed door.” If any reader has more on this subject that might shed some light, we would love to hear it. Michael Barone’s column on the tactical uses of mass peaceful resistance is must-reading: “Non-violent protest.”
Finally, Chrenkoff provides a personal recollection of the imposition of martial law in Poland 23 years ago today: “Remembering the martial law.”
UPDATE: Reader Johanna Stephens forwards us this BBC backgrounder on Rocco Buttiglione, “Profile: Rocco Buttiglione,” and this less unfriendly update with links, “The excommunication of Rocco Buttiglione.”
