I'm careful enough about being in error that I constantly look for
signs that I am more right and the Bushists are more wrong. Probably
this is not common behavior -- most people just think they are

Okay, what city goes next? How many cities do we have to lose before
one realizes that more destroyed cities is what our broken form of
'democracy' will give us?
That we still tolerate George W. Bush after all this shows that

And look where it has gotten us. A part of downtown Manhattan,
destroyed. Almost the entire city of New Orleans, destroyed. We hadn't
had a major city destroyed in this country since 1906 -- we forgot
what it was like. It would have been better had we not forgotten. What
city goes next?

you don't know what comes next, and if you do know you are wrong. You
do it anyway. That's how this nation was founded, goddammit.
