There may still be hope

Every time I begin to doubt my “predictions” that Herr Bush will not see a second term (and might not even make it to the end of this one), articles pop up hinting that I might just know what I’m talking about. I’ve been known to make some rather astute observations about current political atmospheres, and I dearly hope that my latest foray into this realm also holds water. No, I am certainly no prophet – or even a pundit – but I saw the downfall of King George the First long before most of my friends noted the kinks in his armor.

I’m still working on tweaking the site design itself. I’ve added back in the ability to register with the site.

That would be how I lost the original post, however (my stupid fault, not WP’s). The neverhood is also now running on WP 0.72 beta2/RC1 and all seems well.
