B.D.’s Leg · I’m sur­prised there hasn’t been more buzz about Gar­ry Trudeau hav­ing blown off B.D.’s leg to­day (but, mer­ci­ful­ly, ap­par­ent­ly he’s go­ing to live). It hit me kind of hard; this is the first time that the Iraq war has in­jured a “person I know” and I’ve known B.D. for go­ing on thir­ty years now. I don’t sup­pose it’ll change the po­lit­i­cal land­scape any, but you have to ad­mire Trudeau for tak­ing this on head-on. Plus, on the up­side, he al­so took B.D.’s dorky hel­met of­f, and it was get­ting kind of tired af­ter all these years.
