    The comedic curmudgeon is back and, oh, how we've missed him. Has marriage, fatherhood, and liberal neighbors tamed P. J. O'Rourke? Evidently not for although he now stays closer to home he's still Argus-eyed and his satire is as sassy as ever. Provoking laughter all the way this best selling author of ten books now gives us his jaundiced and juicy views on a myriad of diverse topics, such as Hillary Clinton's book, Venice vs. the Las Vegas Venetian, women in the workplace, social security, the missile defense system, and much more. He's unbaised. Each party and persuasion receives a verbal knuckle rapping from O'Rourke, who has said, 'Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.' Re the United Nations O'Rourke writes, 'They have bagels (at the U.N. Cafeteria) with butter. No cream cheese. No lox. Just butter. At the U.N. they put butter on their bagels. No wonder these people can't achieve peace in the Middle East.' His take on the drug problem is 'The problem with illicit drugs is that nobody knows anything about them - except for those of us who found out too much, and we have memory problems.' O'Rourke's combination of humor and intelligence is rare. As I said, we're glad he's back. Some may welcome him; others may be offended - no one will be bored.
