Today's Seattle Times editorial page made up for many of its recent shortcomings by publishing Dave Barry's hilarious Year in Review [only in the Times' print edition, but also online here]. Example:

... U.S. coalition-building efforts are dealt a severe blow when France announces it will not participate in the impending Iraq invasion, a decision that, in the words of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, "could seriously impair our ability to surrender."
Evey Monday the Times publishes Dave Barry's column in the "Northwest Life" section along with Dear Abby and the comics. Meanwhile, the Times Monday editorial page publishes Molly Ivins. The Times would do well to promote Dave Barry to the editorial page and bury Molly Ivins in the funny pages, since Dave Barry has several positive qualities that Molly Ivins doesn't share:
a) Dave Barry is actually funny.
b) Dave Barry only makes stuff up for humorous effect, not to deceive his readers.
c) Dave Barry doesn't plagiarize other people's material.
