Diary of a Hoosier out of her element
When Kerry was drawing 80,000 people to downtown Madison, WI a few days before the election, he recalled a friend telling him,"The Red Sox have a better chance of winning the World Series than you have of being elected president." Well, the Red Sox won that year, and so did Kerry.
I think it was in "On the Trail of the Assassins" that Jim Garrison characterized the cynicism of Americans as directly traceable to the JFK assassination and coverup. He called us a nation of Hamlets, who suspected that the throne of the country had been stolen, but felt isolated and unable to right the wrong that had been done.I think about that a lot these days.
