I really like what Tina Brown is doing at The Daily Beast. There's no hint of the crowd at the Beast - it's all Tina's sensibility, her wit and judgment. So I'm thrilled to now be contributing to the new website. My first piece, published today, is a defense of (sleazy) lobbyists - surely the loneliest and most misunderstood people in America today.
