If you aren’t already a fan of Absolutely Fabulous then what’s the matter with you!?

On a more somber note, journalist Michael Hastings was killed in a car crash yesterday. For those not familiar with his work, Hastings was a fearless reporter, especially for his young age. He was a brutal critic of the Bush administration, and, unlike far too many such critics, he has been equally critical of the Obama administration, especially regarding the drone program and the NSA wire taps. I haven’t read The Operators but his first book, I Lost My Love in Baghdad, was a gut-wrenching account of the death of his girlfriend in Iraq, and the circumstances around it, and I can’t recommend it more.

Our news media is definitely diminished by his loss. He was 33.
