Think “progress”

Read this. The fifth commenter's criticism is correct, but doesn't take away much of the original point.

On a separate matter, and possibly clearing up an ambiguity, I'm planning to eventually put up some back-dated posts fixing and completing the “Memory Lane” series of terrible Bush Administration-related events for each year 2001-08 (1,2 and 6 were posted on schedule). Not including September 11th in 1 is deliberate, because while Pres. Bush could and should have had a greater focus on terrorism in general and al-Qaeda in particular before 9/11, I don't take the view that he could have prevented it. On the other hand, not mentioning anthrax for 2001 is accidental.
