“No man’s ignorance will ever be his virtue.” Seriously.
It’s also difficult to beat this version of George Washington’s farewell address:
“Like the scripture says: everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree. . . ” I wonder what it will be like for President Obama, whose vine and fig tree will be in Washington, D.C. for another year and a half, and for the Human Stain. History has its eyes on them.
If you have any thoughts or reactions to the president’s speech tonight, please leave them in the comments below.
