How exciting it is to me to see such chain of events as:
Clinton in "impromptu visit to N. Korea, which I read before work today;
The Successful release of US prisoners, which I just read now.
There is hope. There is an America that can prize our own brand of freedom without relying on dubious methods of espionage (Our Father, who art in Nature, please forgive us our trespasses in Guatemala) and outright war (those in the Middle East) but instead depends on the art of linguistic subterfuge and political maneuvering. Those I can accept without the burden of communal guilt.
In other news, happy birthday (for another minute) to the Mr. President, himself.
