Reading and Politics and Bush

Pimme said in her journal that there were key words that people used to find articles of interest, and I thought for the fun of it I'd try a variation on her technique. Since I started this journal I've had over 100,000 hits (ow! ow! ow!) but as Diana says, most of you are stealth readers.

To those of you who leave comments, I say thank you again; to those of you who read and run, well, it was nice of you to stop by. Come again some time.

Speaking (not) of politics, with the troubles this administration is having, the revelations of cabal power brokerage and lies at the highest level, arrogation of powers not granted by the Constitution and on and on--why is there no talk of impeachment?

It seems to me that a President and his cabal who lie to the American people and who declare war without so much as a whimper from the legislature are far more culpable than a President who dallies with an adult age White House intern (who gives a damn?).

But true to our Puritan heritage we are far more titillated by Presidential sexual misconduct than we are by theft and mismanagement, incompetence leading to citizens' deaths, and lying and cronyism in the White House and Congress (Brownie remains a "consultant" to FEMA and is still pulling down $148,000 a year). What a shame.

Oh, yes, what I started to say at the beginning about reading: At the start of the year I said my goal was to read 52 books this year, one for each week. What I meant to say was new books (re-reading an old favorite doesn't count) and I have reached my goal this week. Additionally, I have re-read Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond, just because it is so interesting.

Should I set the same goal for next year? What do you think? Or some other goal....
