A Minor Rekindling
 / 

Back in school, I was a huuuge Thomas Friedman fan. “The Lexus and the Olive Tree” was the Bible as far as I was concerned, and I used the term “Golden Straightjacket” with a Golden Straight Face.

Over time, my affinity for Friedman waned; now I’m usually put off by his too-neat analogies.

But his column today really nails it — and I am again, at least for a day, a Friedmaniac.

But whoah — what’s up with this?

I have this routine. I get up every morning around 6 a.m., fire up my computer, call up AOL’s news page and then hold my breath to see what outrage has happened in the world overnight.

Tom Friedman gets his news from AOL??
