No Comment Necessary

From David Brock's Blinded By The Right, page 25:

"The dominant figure at the (Washington) Times was the editor in chief, Arnaud de Borchgrave, Newsweek's former chief of foreign correspondents ... the son of a Belgian Count, and the husband of a much younger, porcelain-skinned wife, Alexandra, an accomplished photographer and the great grandaughter of the esteemed book publisher Henry Villard, Arnaud was culturally about as far as one could get from Bible Belt fundamentalism ... (he) could occasionally be glimpsed doing early morning push-ups in his underwear in his office, or sunning himself with a foil reflector in the bureau adjacent to the Times building, maintaining a perpetual orange glow."
