Next Wednesday, our routines will be broken temporarily, as we will wake up to either a new president or the old one who's merrily brushing his teeth in the White House bathroom. This "either-or" situation is getting to be very nerve-wracking.
For those of us who did not vote for Bush, election 2000 has turned out to be a nightmare that never ends. We can say, "See, I told you so!" until our faces turn blue, but the fact is you-know-who is about to have his lease for the big old mansion in D. C. renewed for another four years. A friend of mine once commented wryly, "Bush is not a bad president if you take that Iraq thing out of the equation."
Problem is: you can't!
