April 6, 2008, Vox parvi populi

Howdy folks... Y'all like my Bush's niece outfit?

This week's teeny-bopper icon in "vox parvi populi" (voice of the tiny people, though Daddy says "little people") is Miranda Cosgrove, now star of "iCarly" and previously a living demonstration of how girls are just smarter than boys in "Drake and Josh," where two boys-- even one who was supposed to be smart in school-- were just no match for a girl-- even several years younger. Daddy says Miranda's character, Megan, was like a young Hillary Clinton: totally smart, totally focused, totally ruthless. (Click on Miranda for an explanation of her fashion statement.)

This has been... Vox parvi populi.
