November 22nd

This is a wistful anniversary...it seems like so many things in history are repeating themselves (Vietnam anyone?), its hard to imagine a President who INSPIRED rather than infuriates.

I have went to the gravesite, and I was struck by the silent reverence with which everyone who visited the grave behaved. I was there on Memorial Day, 2003. The current president was speaking at the Tomb of the Unknowns (went through tons of security, did not see him, did not care to). The weather was hot and humid.
