Well, well, well… Guess who else has hired a lawyer in response to questions about his involvement in the Valerie Plame case? None other than Dick Cheney! And there’s also news that the senior administration flipper in the case might be none other than Cheney aide, John Hannah! Things are getting extremely close to George Bush now, aren’t they?
In other good news, I heard on the radio on the way into work this morning that gasoline demand fell by the largest margin in ten years last month, most likely due to the high prices. Oil and gas reserves are filling back up. That’s good news. The saner among us might view this as a tremendous opportunity to catch our breath and start looking for ways to lessen our dependence on these fossil fuels. My guess though, is that as soon as prices begin to fall again, people will forget all about the future.
