Encouraging non-developments

The push to go to war with Iraq seems to have been dealt some severe setbacks. Meanwhile, the push for a Homeland Security Department may yet fall apart, if only because it is so unwieldy. The TIPS disaster wound up turning into just another gimmick for John Walsh on “America’s Most Wanted.” We were even spared a Medicare prescription drug benefit for seniors.

Not too bad. Maybe I should spend more time in D.C.
