How do you write an article about Japanese grass-roots radiation monitoring without including Sean Bonner?

You're right. His NYT bio reveals he's a business/sportswriter who happens to be living in Japan.

Do you think God wants Rick Perry to run for President just to humble him a bit?

CORRECTION: I think God wants Perry and Bachman to run because he wants to humble Mitt Romney.

32 years ago today, Jimmy Carter delivered what has come to be known as the "Malaise Speech." It doomed his presidency and redefined what Americans expect from our elected leaders. But it was also one of the greatest speeches an American president has ever given.

Excerpt:
...our people have turned to the Federal Government and found it isolated from the mainstream of our Nation's life. Washington, D.C., has become an island. The gap between our citizens and our Government has never been so wide. The people are looking for honest answers, not easy answers; clear leadership, not false claims and evasiveness and politics as usual.

What you see too often in Washington and elsewhere around the country is a system of government that seems incapable of action. You see a Congress twisted and pulled in every direction by hundreds of well financed and powerful special interests. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another. You often see a balanced and a fair approach that demands sacrifice, a little sacrifice from everyone, abandoned like an orphan without support and without friends.

Often you see paralysis and stagnation and drift. You don't like, and neither do I. What can we do?

First of all, we must face the truth, and then we can change our course. We simply must have faith in each other, faith in our ability to govern ourselves, and faith in the future of this Nation. Restoring that faith and that confidence to America is now the most important task we face. It is a true challenge of this generation of Americans.

We are at a turning point in our history. There are two paths to choose. One is a path I've warned about tonight, the path that leads to fragmentation and self-interest. Down that road lies a mistaken idea of freedom, the right to grasp for ourselves some advantage over others. That path would be one of constant conflict between narrow interests ending in chaos and immobility. It is a certain route to failure.

All the traditions of our past, all the lessons of our heritage, all the promises of our future point to another path, the path of common purpose and the restoration of American values. That path leads to true freedom for our Nation and ourselves. We can take the first steps down that path as we begin to solve our energy problem.

also true... the key is really for O to not only address the situation, but to be "tough" about it... reagan got elected after carter more because carter ended up being seen as weak in the public's eye, regardless of the strides he made in social programs, etc - reagan, the movie hero, the tough guy, was the polar opposite. that election was less about actual issues and more about being seen as a "strong leader".

Actually, I've been abnormally motivated, with "Forensic Shimmy" on loop. It's just hard to stay in my seat.

And by "good catch", he means "thanks for pointing out the obvious -- smart-ass".

And the circle of life continues...
