The Food for Oil gets oilier 

Roger Simon has a scoop on the Oil for Food investigation. Linked to by everyone now, including yesterday by Drudge, which must have created quite a spike in Roger's traffic - we all have some concept of an Instalanche, but not many bloggers have experienced a Drudgelanche.

And who says that blogs don't break news? I suspect that as the blogosphere develops, we're going to see a lot more of that.

One day the story of the Oil for Food scandal will be made into a book, and if there is any justice in the world, Claudia Rosett will get a Pulitzer for her tireless quest to expose the corruption in high and low places. In fact, who better to write the story than Claudia and Roger, the mystery writer extraordinaire - it has everything: international corruption, oil, dictators, shady businessmen, nepotism; even an elderly aunt conveniently falling down an elevator shaft.
