Yesterday I believed that the Prez would tell us all on our teevees that it was finally time to grow up, that the adolescent period of American history had finally passed, that if we were to continue to be any sort of nation we had to - as a whole, as a group - start acknowledging reality, data and facts, deal with them, and stop dreaming. Last night the Prez spoke, and he might have been speaking to the citizens and other residents of this country ... or, as Charles Pierce wrote, he might have been speaking to another country, or a country "to be" sometime or somewhere else. Over the next 11 months, we shall see if our society has matured or whether he spoke to a fantasy country that may or may not exist sometime.
