I have not written anything for a while, and part of it is because we can face four more years of Messers Bush, Cheney, & al. I should say that i do not begrudge slightly more tha half of the public's desire to see President Bush in charge given the choices they faced. What depressed me (and still does) is that if we thought that the last four years were exciting, I am pretty certain that the next will be even more so. And that worries me, since I am a creature of habit, and I don't particularly enjoy the prospect of anymore radical change of the type we will no doubt be seeing over the course of the next four years. Since I have had a poor record with recent predictions,my hope is that I am wrong on this one as well. Why I don't think I am can be found in the President's own words.
