A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

For a comment on the sad withdrawal of Miguel Estrada from consideration for federal court, please scroll down.

Those who are just coming to A Mind That Suits may want to check out 3 compilations of the Best of A Mind That Suits that appeared on August 10 on this most illustrious site.

They must have a lot of 18-year-olds in California, at least according to the indispensible, but occassionally silly, Wall Street Journal. In an analysis of the vaguely quixotic gubernatorial campaign of Peter Ueberoth, the Journal maintained that younger voters "were not even born" when the 1984 Olympic Games were held in Los Angeles. Mr. Ueberroth became a household name, of course, for salvaging those games and turning them into a real triumph.

Now, the election is on October 7. Assuming the games ended in July or early August, 1984, the only voters not born by then are 19 1/4 years old, or younger. Anyone who was six back then remembers the games, and they are still "younger voters." And everyone over, say, 28--10 at the time of the games--probably has vivid memories of them, and of Mr. Ueberroth. Sports fans of course know him from his time as Commissioner of Baseball as well. He has a lot of money to remind everyone of those facts, as well as of how competent a man he is.

The problem is that he has been out of the spotlight for a few years now, and, after all this time, A Mind That Suits had to go look up how to spell "Ueberroth." Vote McClintock.
