I've been one poor correspondent...

We've been digging out from one heck of a winter storm here-(and a $4600 sewer line break in front of yours truly's humble abode)-I'm too old for this!

Just a couple of quick thoughts today.

Farewell, John Bolton. Good riddance. Tony Snow actually said today that Bolton had done a "great job." Exactly how, Tony, unless alienating us from the whole world is "great?"

Congratulations, Lindsay Lohan, for becoming an alcoholic before being old enough to have alcohol.

I will spend more money this year at stores that say "Happy Holidays!"

and my favorite one.
Preeminent historian Eric Foner wrote in the Washington Post that
It is impossible to say with certainty how Bush will be ranked in, say, 2050. But somehow, in his first six years in office he has managed to combine the lapses of leadership, misguided policies and abuse of power of his failed predecessors. I think there is no alternative but to rank him as the worst president in U.S. history.

Knowing what we all knew about George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, the American electorate in those years is likely the worst ever.

As a wise boss once told me, "The most important decisions you ever make will be about the people you hire."

Those who hired George W. Bush at the ballot box are responsible for his administration's failure, but we all are paying the price for their (and his) stupidity.

Sadly, one needs only to go back to the GOP's Texas Party Platform of 2000, and adopted when Bush was still in the Gov's Office, to see what was waiting for us.
