It's one of those work days where I'm near to a computer.
Reading the reports and commentary reminds me of something I thought of a few months ago that now seems obvious. If there are any parallels between what's been happening and past events the nearest, with the frightening exception of 1918, is undoubtedly Vietnam. But as far as this country is concerned that means at the very least, 1972. The contempt that is pouring out of normally mainstream commentators is shocking. How quickly we've moved to this point makes clear how radical, and I still think how absurdly miscalculated, was the Bush administation's tear to the right.
