I’m a third of the way home and have just a few random thoughts.
I gather from emails that people in the blogosphere are very excited by what happened on the Chicago trading floor the other day. I’m not. It’s too little too late. Obama is prez for 4 years, an overwhelmingly Dem Congress is locked in for 2 years, and the spendulus bill is law. The last was not a surprise. Anyone paying the tinyiest bit of attention saw it coming. The rationality after the mass hysteria is cold comfort.
Speaking of cold, we went to the hot springs in Steamboat yesterday. Not only was the water delightful — perfect temp and that mineral smell — but we loved the sight of lifeguards in full winter attire. Not something we often see.
And my last thought for this post: Flying into bouncy-bouncy Denver, it was very comforting to know that both pilots were Navy trained. (And have you noticed that, since the miraculous Hudson landing, people pay more attention to the ore-flight safety spiel? It finally seems possible that it will matter.)
One more thing: yay! Regarding Bibi in Israel.
Oh, and if you check put the American Thinker blog (and I can do the link using an iPhone), you’ll see that Obama’s two newest appointees are, respectively, an ignoramus and an antisemite. With a lineup like that, we need all the hope we can get.
