So another 24/7 news cycle has blown by. Whipsawed by so many different stories -- and nonstories -- trotted out by the media for our consumption, I must admit that the particulars have started to blur together.

Did Nancy Pelosi wear a diaper so her plane wouldn't have to stop for refueling? Or was that Denny Hastert? Did Rudy Giuliani move a step closer to running for president by entering rehab at Delancey Street? And did John Edwards' new blog mistress marry an octogenarian billionaire, get her own reality show, then lose nearly 70 pounds as the Catholic-bashing spokesperson for TrimSpa?
