I'd pay to throw baseballs at a target to dunk Maureen Dowd in a tank of water.


Or, to guess Paul Krugman's weight.


Or, watch Bob Herbert trying to ignore the laws of gravity on a high wire.


Or, Frank Rich in a cage reasoning with lions.


Or, Thomas Friedman putting a sword down this throat while writing about a Bangladeshi doctor he met while waiting for a plane.


Or, to see how many David Brooks can fit in a Volkswagen.
