Where the wild things are

Whoa: Somebody finally disclosed Cheney's "undisclosed" location [Thanks to Emily Messner for the tip]. It's in Pennsylvania, not too far from Camp David. Most interesting bits:

There was zero cell phone service. Less than zero, as a phone seemed to turn itself off. One of the heavily armed soldiers [guarding the complex] allowed a reporter to approach and identify himself. When an outside phone failed to work, the reporter was invited into the guardhouse to use the house phone.
Before long, one of the guards was chatting away about having seen the film Fahrenheit 9/11. "There are so many people who haven't seen this stuff," the soldier said. "And this really opened their eyes."

Moonwhile, Katrina vanden Heuvel takes her best shot at a "Dear Scooter/Love, Dick" letter. The whole thing's great but the last paragraph's the best (hint: think of Scooter's letter to Judy Miller):

[...] You were indicted in the fall. It is still fall. You fell down the stairs and broke your foot. Now you don't walk so good. It would be terrible if you fell down the stairs again and broke your skull. Others can cover up our stories--Iraqi WMD and the energy task force, Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay. Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their unbroken roots connect them. Do the thirty years. At least you still have your health.
Until then, you will remain in my prayers and under surveillance.
With admiration,
