    (the other) quiggin makes a lot of sense, but sense doesn’t matter as much as one might wish. the decision to go to iraq was made for reasons never made public. i suspect megalomania would sum them up, although people whose personal fortunes depend on oil and munitions might simply have done it for the money.

    i read ‘the decline and fall of the roman empire’ as a young lad, and was amazed that incompetent and quite insane persons could find themselves at the head of empire. i was comforted by the fact that the usa would never be in such a position, as the election process would produce good leaders.

    well, i was young. and wrrroong.

    I am apparently also a pro-skateboarder in the US, a business marketing “guru” and the marketing director for CHOGM. I must be really busy.

    One more reason to long for limited government. Limited government means limited incompetence and limited insanity.
