I usually end up reading Maureen Dowd's op-eds in the NY Times, even though she rarely makes a point. Usually one can find some moderately interesting Obama interview tid-bits scattered throughout. But in today's paper, something struck me particularly:
The British opposition leader David Cameron gave Obama a copy of Winston
Churchill’s “A History of the English-Speaking Peoples” and a box of CDs by
British bands, including the Smiths, Radiohead and the Gorillaz.
Hey, what do you know? Radiohead? The Smiths? Very nice. It sounds like this Cameron guy gave Obama everything he needs to know about the UK: Churchill and brit-rock. World tour = success!
