TED is back, with insight. Our temporally challenged super blogger has hit another one out of the park. He provides US with a painfully incisive sovereign psycho-analysis. We admire success if you are Babe Ruth, not Mark McGuire. We love the Yankees because of the Cubs. Personally, I never did get the Dave Matthews thing. Ever the optimist, he leaves US with this footnote:
4 History is littered with the smoldering wreckage of nations and peoples who mistook Americans' native optimism for childish naïvete, softness, or lack of resolve in the face of difficult struggles. It is unwise to underestimate us.
What he said.
