My RSS Live Bookmark takes me to the permasnark link of each post. I just read the full Zakaria/Freedman snark on the splash page: must be some kind of coding glitch that produced the extraordinarily profund statement of self-effacement I quote above. It’s what we artsy types call “a happy accident.”

2) Probably as a result of 1, Zakaria tells fewer jokes.
