  1. There’s a definite similarity in the shape of the nose … she’s got a much better chin, though.

  2. Really, this had no intended political point. When I saw the news photo, it struck me that Brooks had the hair-do and the supercilious look of one of a Restoration courtier.

  3. King Charles looks more like Rowan Atkinson than Rebekah Brooks, to my eye.

  4. Oops. I meant “tautology”. I understand “pleonasm” to be pleonastically the same thing. I must have been led astray by the appropriate associations of “moron”.

    If News Corp. implodes, what will become of its aleptic nympholepts?
