    The White House Correspondents Dinner, which I attended this past weekend, is one of the most unusual events I know. Where else do you find Condoleezza Rice and Pamela Anderson in the same room?

    On the surface at least, giving drivers a summertime "holiday" on the 18.4 cent federal gasoline tax sounds like a good idea. Too bad the idea flunks Economics 101.
