A reader calls to my attention that Gene Lyons’ weekly column was missing from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette this week. I didn’t notice an explanation. (UPDATE: Apparently there was a notice that there was no column, but no explanation.) But he apparently wasn’t on vacation, unless an impostor wrote this column appearing on a blog. The column starts by defending Robert Novak. No kidding. Besides that, it sounds like Gene.
