Rest, Boston, rest:
Don’t know about you, but I still have a tenacious cold and sinus infection to nurse now that IT is all over. I assume millions of others also need rest, especially after yesterday’s awesome rolling rally parade, the ultimate exclamation point to one of the greatest weeks in Boston history....
Quickie note: City and state leaders and workers, thank you. You did a hell of a job. The wise decisions to hold the parade on Saturday, to extend the parade route, to end it with the unforgettable lap around the Charles River basin. Thank you pols, cops, public-works grunts, T personnel, all of you. Take a bow! ... I salute you with penicillin and a shot of OJ!
-- Three million? Two million?
Two million sounds about right. Lot of repeat celebrants running from one section of the parade to the next for a second cheer.
‘GEORGE! with all thy faults’: George Will
, one of the few conservatives to actually stick up for principles instead of succumbing to pom-pom partisanship, makes a good case not
to vote for Kerry, giving Bush defacto albeit reluctant support. ... I agree with all his points, but disagree with his conclusion. President Bush lost me when we didn’t find WMD and he dismissed it as minor. The rest of the botched occupation just added to an overall picture of someone who would say and do anything just to get Saddam. He got him. Good. Now it’s time for George to go for letting down people who enthusiastically or reluctantly supported the war for other reasons. ... KERRY! with all thy faults.
