Crazies are in charge. Anything can happen.

Take a few minutes to read Billmon's latest "Mutually Assured Dementia". Best to do so in the morning when you have an entire day to regroup and get settled enough to sleep.

This reminds me of Nixon and Kissinger's duet called "He's so crazy he just might push the button".

Too bad it also reminds me of Dr. Strangelove: or, How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb.

Oh, for the Nixon years, when the president could play the piano, when expansion of government spending meant the creation of the EPA, when it was alarming that the president had a simple list of enemies, when tapping a few wires caused a shock, and when "fights about free speach" meant "trouble for the Smothers Brothers".

I just hope we get to write the history.
