They say that misery loves company, but in reading Jack Shafer's comment,
Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day.I find myself in the position of having to protest that I am not yet so miserable as to want that company.
Seriously, though, I picked the name of this weblog as a bit of self-parody - no matter how I come across at times, I don't take myself that seriously - but at times like this I feel compelled to point out that a stopped clock is not right twice a day. It is wrong all of the time. The fact that the incorrect information it conveys is, on a recurring basis, consistent with the facts does not change the fact that the information frozen on its face is entirely disconnected from reality. And such is Judith Miller.
