Meet Me and Hubris
Me and Hubris. Honestly, I have trouble some days understanding that I am the bug on the windowshield of life and not the nut behind the wheel. Just now, I caught myself writing to Congress to make a modest proposal on how to bring our troops home. It would never happen and I am sure the representative has been deluged by similar proposals already. So I tore up the letter. What makes me do these things? Hubris. Good old fashioned hubris. Look it up here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubris And for a book on Iraq and presidential hubris, look no further than Amazon.com. http://www.amazon.com/Hubris-Inside-Story-Scandal-Selling/dp/0307346811 One of these days, I'll pen the lyrics to me and hubris as sung to that classic: Love and Marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage. But until then, peace.
