It's official. Tom-Tom has lost all touch with reality. There is no other way to explain the fact that he wrote this sentence in today's Times op ed:
"But all in all, compared with the vast repression and nuclear standoff that characterized the cold war, the post-cold-war era has been much better for a lot of humanity."Uh, Tommy-boy, you forgot to add, "-- until Bush."
Or perhaps the Bush years are all just a big, cruel joke and I'm living in a parallel universe where everything -- on just about every level -- just seems to be worse than I could ever imagine?
Tom, it's time; go write a novel and leave reality to the non-idiologues.
