Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

No Post Friday

I am driving a young woman to Newark Airport at 5:30AM (I think her name is Hermione Granger, but I could be mistaken).

Then I troop to Manhattan where I will finally visit Ground Zero and Trinity Church, maybe Zuccotti Park.  Then to the Met to stare at the Impressionists.  Then to a friend's apartment for a power nap.  Catch up with her, then off to a Dartmouth Rugby function at the New York Athletic Club.

Going to New York always makes me feel sophisticated and a rube, mighty and insignificant.
