So much to talk about...that's what I get for vacationing and otherwise neglecting this journal. However, I'm kind of crunched for time right now, so instead of a real post you get a reading recommendation.

I became enamored some months ago with the columns of Frank Rich, over at the Times. Certainly of the columnists I have read, I think he does a good job of pointing out just how hypocritical the outgoing administration has been, without being obsessive or belaboring the point too much. So, my recommendation is to go and take a look at what he has to say.

What's your take on Bush's last press conference? If you haven't heard it, go check it out on youtube or something.

I frankly don't care about his retrospective, and I doubt many people do. I think he got one thing right: history will be, and in fact already is, the judge of his presidency. Unfortunately for him, it is pretty clear that history doesn't like what it sees.

More ominously, I didn't hear from him a word about pardons, something that greatly concerns me going forward.

I hope he pardons everybody. EVERYBODY!

Hold a jubilee year and solve the prison crisis in one go.

He should do it.
