    You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart. "No man should marry until he has studied anatomy and dissected at least one woman." by Honore' de Balzac.

    (The link is to the Hillary Clinton interviews, despite how the link is labeled.)
    Matt Bai was certainly not surprised, as evidenced by his June 5 column on his Yahoo News blog.

    I love it how when a politico in the U.S. makes a mistake, the media immediately wants to know who is responsible and who will be held accountable. But when it is the media who messed up, they say "I don't think we should be looking backwards". Well, I want to know how the media screwed it up and whose heads are going to roll because of this screw-up. Someone has to pay, right?
