Herbert - Worse Than a Nightmare -

(c) 2010 F. Bruce Abel

The truth? You can't stand the truth.  Well, Herbert may give it to us anyway.

Op-Ed Columnist - Worse Than a Nightmare - "We’re like a compulsive gambler plunging ever more deeply into debt in order to wager on a rigged game. There is no victory to be had in Afghanistan, only grief. We’re bulldozing Detroit while at the same time trying to establish model metropolises in Kabul and Kandahar. We’re spending endless billions on this wretched war but can’t extend the unemployment benefits of Americans suffering from the wretched economy here at home.
The difference between this and a nightmare is that when you wake up from a nightmare it’s over. This is all too tragically real."
