  •  A LONG way from "So I ate him!' James Watt... (5+ / 0-)

    A bit of an obscure reference. But I'm reminded of a cartoon that I saw when I was about 12 years old. At the time, James Watt was Secretary of the Interior. He was the guy creating all kinds of radical anti-environmental proposals. I would have to go back and read about him, but I remember specifically the cartoon.

    In it, one bear says to another bear: "So I said, 'THE James Watt?! Despoiler of the land and water and air?' And he said 'yes, that's me!' So I ate him."

    Today we enjoy an improved sense of responsibility. It hasn't been that long really -- maybe about 25 years. But we have come a long way, baby...

    Remember -- this election was NEVER about Obama -- it was about US.
