Line of the Week

Although he’s not my favorite talk-show host, Jay Leno is undeniably a funny guy, and a very hard worker.  (Personally, I’m old school: I like David Letterman, who as the late great Neil Postman liked to point out, specializes in pulling back the curtain and revealing the trickery of TV.)

But in Hollywood it’s generally agreed that Leno has the best writing staff, and hence the best one-liners. Here’s a winner from last night:

"As you know, when President Bush is down on his ranch, he likes to spend his time clearing brush and chopping wood, because no matter how much legislation you pass to cut down trees, there’s nothing like destroying them with your own hands."
