Gail Collins, "Counting Really Small Blessings": When Gail Gets a Life?

Gail Collins begins her latest New York Times essay "Counting Really Small Blessings" (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/24/opinion/collins-counting-really-small-blessings.html?_r=1&ref=opinion) by observing:

"I have a real tolerance for boring television, having watched at least two series now on the air about people who bid on abandoned storage lockers, as well as several segments of the show about extreme coupon-collecting."

Given that Gail apparently doesn't have a life, this admission should come as no surprise. On the other hand, I have no tolerance for boring op-eds, so without further ado, I pressed "Ctrl + f," entered "dog" and found what I was looking for:

"I guess now there’s no chance anybody will ask Romney about the day he drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of the car."

"Counting Really Small Blessings"? That's the twenty-eighth time that Collins has recounted the Seamus story in an op-ed. I suppose the real blessing would be if Gail were to find some meaningful topic about which to write.

I guess there's no chance Gail could ask fellow New York Times columnist and OWS booster, Nicholas Kristof, about his wife's former employer, Goldman Sachs, and her current employer, Mid-Market Securities. Now that would be interesting . . .
