Such is the madness of the media cycle these days that if you’re going to write about a significant event whose occurrence is predictable (say, an annniversary or a milestone), you have to get in a few days early to get noticed. Gary Younge has been pondering Obama’s first 100 days. Younge is one of the best (British) journos writing about American politics, and his writing has justly been collected in book form. So while an enormous amount of tosh will no doubt be scribbled on Wednesday (and a lot of it will probably refer to Obama’s last 100 seconds instead), I am, in this instance, pleased that Younge has got in early.
So long and thanks for all the fish
