I've been really bad about blogging this week, so I'm dashing off a post before bedtime, so don't expect too much. :)
I added the Obamamania widget today from Slate Magazine's Encyclopedia Baracktannica, just because I think it's so clever.
And here's today's "Bushism of the Day":
"One of the things important about history is to remember the true history." — Washington, D.C., June 6, 2008
If only. As someone famously remarked, history is written by the winners. It will be interesting to see what history ultimately records about the first decade of the 21st century. My bet is it won't be regarded as a "Golden Age" of anything, except maybe greed. There are times I was ecstatic over the 20th century, and I'd never have anticipated that.
What do you think? What will history think of this period?
