Wouldn't it be lovely now to see a vision to upgrade the infrastructure in this country, rather than bombing the infrastructure of other countries? Of course, vision requires open eyes, and Bush can't open his. He squints, as though he is looking into the sun, or maybe it is his way not to see. Perhaps, he has been blinded by the sun, so he can't see the obvious alternative to oil. I would love to pry his squinty, tiny, too-close-together eyes open so he could see.
The book I am reading, A Time of Gifts, by Patrick Leigh Fermor is an intriguing look at how Hitler built his base. Patrick is walking across Germany in 1933, and records his impressions. Almost all of the people he meets dismiss Hitler and the "fanatics" in support of him. It is a wonderful book in every way, but that aspect is fascinating. It demonstrates how important it is to not be complacent about a leader of whom we disapprove.
The Friday seniors were out yesterday, as they are every Friday, in protest against the war. Good for them.
