OK... So far we've lost: The World Trade Center, a piece of the Pentagon, five or six trillion dollars, almost four-thousand dead American soldiers and almost thirty-thousand wounded (not to mention equipment crashed, blown up or stolen), untold numbers of Iraqis, Afghanis, and a few Pakistanis dead and woulded, millions of Iraqis made refugees, the sympathy and the cooperation of almost every nation on the planet, most of New Orleans, the housing market, Enron, habeus corpus, the Fourth Amendment, a valuable spy specializing in counterproliferation, the Executive Branch, the Supreme Court, the entire Department of Justice, a recent NASA study revealing how unsafe airline travel really is, a space shuttle and seven astronauts, years of government research on global warming, fair elections, President Al Gore, the educational system... and now?
Countless acres of burned forest and homes in Southern California. As the article points out, the U.S. Forest Service, the Department of the Interior, and the Department of Agriculture planned to fail by failing to plan.
Are we ready for a black or female president? Hell, yeah! No one could do any worse than what we've got!
