SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – AT 7:30 P.M. ET:

GROWING – My friend Scott Johnson, at Powerline,  reveals that First Other Woman Paula Broadwell gave a talk at the University of Denver recently in which she revealed information about the Benghazi attack that presumably came from an inside source.  Was in Patraeus.  If so, and it's very big if, he might have been in breach of security laws in giving non-public information to an unauthorized person.  We will only know the truth if Congress does its job.

MAJOR VICTORY – Denmark, where Hamlet and other wonderful guys lived, has decided to scrap the world's first "fat tax," introduced only a year ago.  "The fat tax and the extension of the chocolate tax -- the so-called sugar tax -- has been criticised for increasing prices for consumers, increasing companies' administrative costs and putting Danish jobs at risk," the Danish tax ministry said in a statement.  The mayor of New York, Nanny Mike Bloomberg, heard the news, was overcome by grief, and went into seclusion.

BUT WESTERN CIVILIZATION SLIPS – Brussels, Belgium, headquarters of NATO, has banned its annual Christmas tree on grounds it might be offensive to Muslims.  It will be replaced by something called an "electronic winter tree."  The brains of the people who made this decision were replaced by sawdust many years ago.
