Weekend Reading

If you'd like a good belly laugh to start off your weekend, read James Lileks' "translation" of the Iranian president's letter to George W. Bush. Lileks must have had a lot of fun writing it. And I'll bet his highly amusing interpretation isn't too far off the mark, at least in spirit.

On another silly topic, we're now only days away from the arrival of "The Da Vinci Code" and all the weighty philosophical and theological debates the author likes to believe it presents. Mark Steyn wrote a customarily entertaining piece about the "Code," and he includes a truly funny analysis of the so-called "Gospel" of Judas.

The lingering judicial nominees, high gas prices, and illegal immigration will all still be around on Monday. For now, take a break and lighten up for the weekend.
