More Intrigue at Best of the Web

Check out yesterday's "Special Thanks" section of James Taranto's great web page: (Emphasis ours)

(Carol Muller helps compile Best of the Web Today. Thanks to David Vest, Ethel Fenig, Peter Rice, Michael Segal, Mark Van Der Molen, Michael Kingsley, Charles Barr, Doug Levene, Thomas Brueckner, Allen O'Donnell, Monty Krieger, Michael Zukerman, John Williamson, Tim Graham, Joe Seely, Rick Langel, M. Gilbertson, David Stauffer, Charlie Gaylord, Jim Swift, Stuart Creque, Bill O'Reilly, John Fletcher, Barak Moore, Jerry Skurnik, Kenneth Bennight, Patrick Price, Buddy Smith, Chris Mario, Geoff Hiten, James Wittenbach, Gerard Farrell, Daniel Goldstein, Cathy Fasano, Jack Archer, Chris Stetsko, Daniel Foty and William White. If you have a tip, write us at, and please include the URL.)

We here at OC Chronicle have become OBSESSED with the names in this daily list of honor. Now the LA Times Editorial Page Editor and the "Factor" are included in the list... why?

What is Taranto thanking O'Reilly for? Picking up the tab at The Palm last night? That hot tip on the 2nd race at Belmont today?

And Kingsley? Is he thanking him for helping create the legend of Monkey Fishing? God knows Taranto's gotten a lot of mileage out of THAT one!

It remains a mystery... I half expect to see Jimmy Hoffa in there next!
