@Hamilton I'll second that!
I wholeheartedly endorse Rippetoe's Starting Strength program, btw: http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program -- 5 basic lifts, with the addition of pull ups and chin ups to make your arms look nice.

@sorry your heinous I have a bit more respect for Douthat solely b/c he openly admits he's a conservative & doesn't try to pass himself off as a moderate to the extent Brooks does.
Oh wait, I forgot Brisbane, too.
#1 reason I will never pay for a Times subscription is they still have Friedman, Keller, Brooks, Leonhardt & Sorkin on the payroll. If they can still afford to pay those hacks, they clearly don't need my money.
