The World’s Smallest Violin

If you’re like me, you probably don’t see enough of Arianna Huffington. Or hear her voice as much as you’d like. Even with her website, her (semi-annual, clip-job) books, and her near-hourly appearances on radio talk shows and television gabfests, I’ve come to realize that I don’t get enough histrionic screeching in my life, and the only prescription is more Arianna Huffington.

And so it was with disappointment and shock that I read in Keith Kelly’s New York Post column the allegation that NBC and MSNBC have banned Arianna from appearing on air because she criticizes Tim Russert in her new book and at the HuffPo. (Kelly attributes the item to “sources.” Hmmmm. Any guesses as to who those “sources” were? ) Apparently, this awful news was delivered to Arianna while she dined with–who else?–Barbara Walters.

Arianna needn’t worry. She looks pretty busy this month. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.
