Nothing new under the sun, really

Obama's holding a rally in Iowa tomorrow. Algore held a rally> in Iowa the Friday before Election Day 2000, too. The snipers on the campanile as he told us to vote for him because he's smarter than any of us and knows how to run our lives better than anyone else were a nice touch, I thought. College students cheered his megalomania--YES!! Save us from having to make our own choices! And give us free stuff!!

Later that day I graded a paper that referred to the "fashion conches consumer" throughout--written by a native English speaker in her second year of kollij--and I wasn't allowed to mark down for "grammar", much less sheer bloody ignorance.

That's the day I realized Western Civilization is doomed.
