Gossip Roundup: We Take It Back

· Inside the Beltway (unclear on the concept of a gossip column) reports that George W. is a total goody-two-shoes. [WT]


· Clinton stays in presidential suite. Drew Barrymore not really a Clark supporter (still a slutty blonde). [Page Six in NYP and NYP]

· Edwards parts his hair on the right and therefore can't get elected. (It's as good an excuse as any.) Jackie O. "declined an activity if it was boring." [Cindy in NYP]

· Peggy Noonan interviews Mel Gibson for Reader's Digest. Noonan gets a history lesson: "The Holocaust happened, right?" [Liz in NYP]

· Lloyd Grove is a part of the "Facist [sic -- for once the misspelling is not ours] Right Wing lie machine" and "Upper Class Twit of the Year," according to readers outraged by his Kerry Botox story. [NYDN]

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
