I should have been working tonight but I wasted the evening, and not even here.

I listened to the hearings again today. I'm torn between a certain optimism, and sense that Bush can't last, and a sense of doom, the fear that he will. The press imagines they represent the people and they do, in their timidity. The responsibilities of democracy require indoctrination, while the freedoms are self perpetuating. "In dreams begin responsibilities" We have one without the other - I've said that before- so I'm worried.
I'm trying to come up with something about rational actors and political theater but I don't have it in me.

I'm tired. Good night.
