Cuz this was his idea, I think. Like lots of ideas he doesn’t get credit for. It is ironic (and frankly touching) in the extreme that David Warren would make such a proposal, regarding two men he should be just as famous as, and isn’t, because — as he’d be the first to remark (being a conservative and all): life is unfair.
I don’t know why the Post doesn’t just hire David Warren away from the Citizen at some exhorbitant salary (which he could somehow hide from his ex-wife: make the cheques out to me, I’ll cash ’em and put the money in a safe deposit box/locker at the Y that David’d share a key to… You think I’m kidding.)
Anyway: when I read the Post’s rhetorical question I instantly heard, in my mind’s ear, my ex-best friend (damn you, 9/11) answering drunkenly: UP my BUTT is where! (brupp.)
Cuz that’s as apt and eloquent answer as any.
