The substance that wasn’t there
I promised to write more about the State Of The Union address, but upon reading the transcript, there was only one subject that caught my attention and I already wrote about that. However a number of really important topics were completely left out of the speech so Bush could talk about subway heroes and other feel-good topics.
But University of Maryland physicist Bob Park did write about the missing subjects with his usual economy of perspective.
The thing is, while Iraq is a horrible situation, there are actually worse things, which the president ignored. Some of them are even tangentally related to Iraq.
