Yeah, me neither.

What I do
remember is friends being unhappy with me because I would not vote for Kerry in 2004 (my first abstinence since 1972). My response was that it was obvious a big crash was coming from all directions, but that people wouldn't admit it yet--and Kerry couldn't stop it. So, it would have to happen, I thought, and then in 2008 the country would have to move in a new direction--and be ready for it. It turns out I was just as naive as the folks who couldn't see the disaster coming.
