Day off today, so I could look at the world again.
In an earlier post, I said that I wanted someone to say “I’m responsible” for things going to hell in New Orleans. So today President Bush said it. I really should give him credit, yet the way this administration has conducted itself in the past, I just feel like any bit of contrition is calculated. It’s disappointing to feel this way. I want to be pleasantly surprised by this bunch someday, but it seems I’ve gotten way too cynical for that.
