You thought Sept. 11, 2001 was an unforgettable date?

No ... the one to really look back on with regret is this one: Jan. 27, 2000

That's when Dubyah told the Nashua, New Hampshire crowd:
"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."

We were warned. We just didn't listen.

Hello...I just stumbled across your blog when looking at some of the blogs on the NC Blogs site - I just left a newspaper job, am (trying to be) a freelance writer, and do some work for WCHL, too. Small, small world. I look forward to reading more.

I hope you'll resume writing on your blog, even if I don't agree with your posts.

I think it's important for NC to have blogs covering the entire political spectrum. It would have been great to debate the state races. For instance, why GOP lawmakers such as State Senator Fred Smith won reelection, while others lost.

Afterall, he did support Bush while other Republicans did not. He won. They lost.

Thanks to you both. I am trying to get back blogging. I have to exercise some restraint because of the job I'm in now, but I think I can manage.

An interesting point you make, Nathan ... this was a very odd year for the GOP. I hope that both parties took it as a wake up call -- that America can still get fired up and turn out .

I dunno 'bout you, but I was genuinely surprised at the Rumsfeld move and how it was handled -- badly, like the rest. It was all pretty disengenuous, I think. Overall, the thing is ... I wouldn't want George II telling me I did a good job -- you could feel the ax coming!

But where do we go from here?
