Last week, while recovering from surgery, I pulled out my copy of The Federalist Papers and started reading.

As I skipped around the various articles, I was reminded of two things. First, the eighty-five articles written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay under the single pseudonym of Publius are the most brilliant, deep and thoughtful commentary ever written about American government.

Secondly, and far more importantly for me last week, The Federalist Papers were definitely not meant to be read while taking narcotic-level pain killers. While reading Madisonís Article 14, the letters all appeared to dance around the page like dead-heads at a Phish concert.

I put the book away and turned on cable television. The drugs that had made The Federalist Papers incomprehensible also made Keith Olbermann tolerable (although it occurred to me, when the drugs wore off every six hours or so, that Keith wasnít actually trying to make me giggle).
