Goodbye and Good Riddance

The last days of 2003 were so full of hope. But 2004 began badly and ended worse. Last January, I hurt my back so badly that I am still in almost constant pain. Howard Dean's campaign of grassroots, reform and plain talk failed in Iowa where the party insiders picked John Kerry, the most cautious insider of all. Why, oh why, do we let a bunch of party hacks in Iowa pick our presidential candidates?

The war in Iraq is so awful I can't even think about it.

Then Bush sold the election in Ohio and Florida and no one seems to care.

Finally is the Tsunami.

I feel no hope for this new year.
