Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

The Center Isn't Holding

Published on Monday, January 2, 2006 by The Journal Star (Lincoln, Nebraska)

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.
? William Butler Yeats, ?The Second Coming,? 1920.
If President Bush ever read those apocalyptic lines, surely he?s reminded of them now. He must be aware that his plans are not working out the way he was told they would, and he must fear that his administration is falling apart, the center not holding.
Of course, had the president been an English major, he would have also read those lines in Robert Burns? ?To a Mouse? reminding us that
?The best-laid schemes o? mice an? men
Gang aft a-gley,
An? lea?e us nought but grief an? pain.?
And had the president read more prose, he might have sensed the dissatisfaction of many others still occupying this world.
