Seriousness of the Day

Meetings are not serious:
There have been, what, a thousand meetings at every level from platoon to the Office of the Secretary and the Oval Office, from the mid-ninties until today, and bin Laden is still not captured or known to be dead. By now the Bush Adminsitration has certainly passed the Clinton Adminsitration in "meetings held" by a factor unknowable but certain to be large.

"Meetings held" like the demotion of Richard Clarke are the parts of the Clinton narrative that most offend serious people, because neither mean anything.
