Maureen Dowd's Latin NY Times column

In both a feat of linguistic talent, and a hilarious protest of American anti-intellectualism, Maureen Dowd's op-ed column in today's New York Times is written in Latin. Called by some as a response to the American obsession with parochialism, and its distaste for erudition, the column is attracting attention all over the blogosphere as a sardonic diatribe on the political zeitgeist.
