This relentless warfare of Clinton versus Obama has claimed two more bystanders: now John Hodgman and I are at one another's throats. By which I mean, we had a civil exchange of slightly differing views.

It is surely time, as Lincoln said in his second Inaugural address, to bind up the nation's wounds and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Or perhaps I exaggerate.

I can only hope Mr. Hodgman knows I love him more than ten Justin Longs.

Update: A small correction to the above has been posted. An object lesson (if one were needed) that we should never blindly accept a second- or third-hand account of events, even when coming from a generally well-informed source such as John Hodgman, without attempting further verification.

That is all.
