"Night Angel" - photo by Iddybud

O sleep, we are beholden to thee, sleep;
Thou bearest angels to us in the night,
Saints out of heaven with palms.
Seen by thy light
Sorrow is some old tale that goeth not deep;
Love is a pouting child.

- Jean Ingelow, "Sleep"

'Ownership Society' - A Cartoon by Iddybud

I have a comment to make about an article in today's New York Times by Jo Becker, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, and Stephen Labaton titled: "The Reckoning - White House Philosophy Stoked Mortgage Bonfire" [excerpt]:
Mr. Bush says he will leave it to historians to analyze "what went right and what went wrong," as he put it in a speech last week to the American Enterprise Institute.

Mr. Bush said he was too focused on the present to do much looking back.

"It turns out," he said, "this isn’t one of the presidencies where you ride off into the sunset, you know, kind of waving goodbye."
I should say not!
