    I don't know where Friedman went wrong ... it wasn't 9/11, it was before that. But I have found it best to listen to what he has to say, not how he says it -- when that's possible -- which is why I prefer to listen to him than read him, because he is forced to get to his point a lot more quickly.

    I think maybe the only thing about him that has changed since 9/11, that I have noticed, is that he seems to think more of himself, which might be a big part of the problem. A guy that Tim Russert (IIRC) dubbed "someone who knows as much about the complexities of the Middle East as anyone" (paraphrased) became in high demand, and I think he believed the hype.
