    First of all, Maureen Dowd is a babe!

    Beyond that, I thought that her column was pretty decent: she admitted that a sample of Colorado’s legal pot was too much for her to handle, and noted that there have been a lot of children there who have gotten totally fouled up by the legal drugs.

    Serious question: Does The New York Times drug test its employees, and, if so, hasn’t the lovely Miss Dowd just admitted that she would fail? She should be discharged, but she also told us that she partook while in a state where it isn’t against the law.
