I actually wrote this in philosophy class, but didn’t have a web connection (damn lack of wireless access):

It is easy with all the war hoopla to start respecting our president. Then one sees him speak, remembers his campaign, and checks out Slate.com’s “Bushisms� page. School is where wings take dream? Sigh. As sad as I am to say it, this “war� has brought about a return to a lot of the responsible world policies that Bush abandoned. But we must remember that he did abandon them. Of course he did not cause the tragedy, but this US-first isolationism certainly does not help matters. Remember the good old days when our worst foreign concern was Northern Ireland?
