Io Triumpe!

June 14, 2006

As I watched the various news oulets yesterday, I could not help but think of the contrast between a Roman triumphal procession and a rat scurrying from bolt-hole to bolt-hole across a weed-strewn lot. 

Back when this disaster began I remember any number of articles, columns and op/eds on "the price of empire."  Even if I wanted the empire (I don't) and even if I was willing to pay the price (I'm not) then this is certainly some strange new sort of empire that George Bush is building.
