"Karma. It’s what’s for dinner."Yeah, Moe, what a totally random coincidence, huh? I was at home working this weekend, my feelings bruised from my conspicuous non-invitation to Atlanta, when Jesse Griffin and Dennis Zaki -- the Woodward and Bernstein of Anchorage -- decided to post "explosive new information" about Sarah Palin from Griffin's "best source," that is instantly confirmed by Zaki's "multiple sources."

What a million-to-one coincidence that, if true, the Griffin-Zaki scoop would mean that I'd somehow failed to get a call from my own "best source," who maybe owes me a favor or two.
A reporter never burns his sources, but a source never burns a reporter, either. So I was feeling kind of burned when I made that call Saturday and was told that Griffin and Zaki were totally full of crap. So if I got the worldwide exclusive quote . . .
That wasn't exactly a coincidence. That black hole of misery now approaching Griffin the Wanker and Zaki the Bozo? Also not a coincidence.
"Divorce Todd? Have you seen Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I’m not blind!"
-- Sarah Palin
Because my sources . . . well, wait. Just wait. Working hard. I'm not "making stuff up."
Sometimes kharma is an all-you-can eat buffet.
