Last night, conservatives gathered at the Four Seasons in New York City for a Power Line event to honor Norman Podhoretz with a book award. Guests included Bill Kristol and Paul Wolfowitz, who arrived with his infamous love interest Shaha Riza. Henry Kissinger also gave a speech:

As Mr. Kissinger said in his remarks, “I don’t know what a blog is. I don’t know how to find a blog.” His computer, he said, is used to read newspapers. [...]

Mr. Kissinger said he was skeptical about the digitalization of media, for if his words and sentences “get shortened for cyberspace, there is no telling what will come out.”

As The New York Times notes, Kissinger should be worried about more than just the digital media getting his words wrong.
