Don't Give Me That Do Good Goody Bull...

I'm hardly the only one to point it out, but Claudia Rosett's ongoing blog of the federal criminal trial of Tongsun Park, who was a player in the U.N. Oil For Food scandal, is the must-read of the moment. The sheer mass of the cash being slathered around is jaw-dropping, and well worth remembering the next time a politician, pundit or reporter holds forth on the usefulness and/or reliability of the U.N.

The only real question in my mind is why Rosett is the only national reporter even mentioning this stuff... but then again, I know why, and I imagine you do, too.
