If you haven’t read Ron Suskind’s article in the New York Times yesterday or you’ve already recycled the magazine, download it here and read it again. I read it yesterday morning on-line before I excerpted it, then read it again after I finished the puzzle. It scared the bejesus out of me, and it will you too. Don’t just read blogged excerpts; take the time to read it all.
The last time I read a description of a group of people who had such a clear view of their destiny and the role Providence had in guiding them and their country, it was in this book by William L. Shirer.
