Have you folks been following the drama of Drudge against the White
House?  It is absolutely fascinating:  The latest Drudge Report opens
this way:


        WHITE HOUSE POPS SUSAN ESTRICH FOR USA TODAY OP-ED ON DRUDGE!

       Please join USC Professor Of Law, media star and former campaign
        manager of Dukakis-Bentsen '88, Susan Estrich, already in progress:

       Matt Drudge keeps claiming that he's being sued by the White House
        and much to my dismay, I've got proof that he's right. It might even
        take care of his lawsuit for awhile.

       Drudge is the Internet boy-wonder who is being sued for libel by White
        House adviser Sidney Blumenthal based on an item, retracted a day later,
        reporting on GOP-spread rumors that Blumenthal was a wife beater.
        Blumenthal hired a lawyer and brought suit, supposedly as a private
        citizen. But Drudge has argued that it is the White House that is
        against him; "It's the White House against Matt Drudge," he
       announced at a forum at USC Annenberg last month, his first public
        appearance since the suit was filed.
