I've said it before: I haven't been a big fan of NEWSWEEK since Tina Brown became its editor; still, it's better now than the royal mess it was. Its limitations remain those of a society with a thirty-second attention span and a blogosphere with cranky, sensationalistic rants. Why do I read it?...

Is Strauss-Kahn a Bill Clinton? Perhaps both are ostriches. However, if Strauss-Kahn is guilty, he is more like a rat. If he turns out to be innocent after all, he’ll be more of a sad circus bear. Arnold Schwarzenegger, ‘the Arnold among Arnolds’, ‘the Governator’ and by now ‘the Bill Clinton of...

Tony Blair is the sort of guy you would take home to your pet orangutan provided your pet orangutan is upto it. Yes, of course, I refer to the former British prime minister’s confession to being an animal in bed. One marvels at his ability to keep 10 Going Down Street in fine fettle, and we shall...

Coverage of the 18th annual International AIDS Conference has all but been eclipsed by nonstop footage of the BP oil spill, and Lindsay Lohan's arrest, but listen to this: Africa is no longer the nucleus of HIV infection.
