Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

A sudden chill came over me this afternoon, reading Den Beste: Whenever it is that Bush leaves office, whether in 2005 or 2009 ...

How quickly we have forgotten the curse of the the zero year. Reagan, joking after he was shot, may have broken only the string, not the underlying pattern. Which makes veep-selection based primarily on electoral advantage even more regrettable than usual.

And then in passing this, from Andrew Sullivan: In some ways, Bush is the JFK to Clinton's Eisenhower.

God, I hope I'm wrong. How would William Blake feel about strangling a meme in its crib?
