In A Dither?!

I'm in a dither this morning, or do you say, "I'm dithering?!" It turns out spring in Chicago, is simply a series of shades of gray, so it is up to us to become connoisseurs of the state of shady blandness. Not so easy, but of course, who said it would be?

I read a little blurb this morning about how it has always been assumed that the U.S. won the Cold War with the U.S.S.R., and it leaves us with the provocative question: "What if the Cold War actually had two losers?" Could People Power (see Venezuela, Chile, Mexico) in Latin America portend the beginning of the waning of the U.S. Imperium?

Could People Power (a government reflective of the people) come knocking at our door too? Are we actually seeing the early death rattles of a significant re-alignment as manifested in the inflated arrogance and bluster of BushCo? Is it always darkest before the dawn? Let me dither in the gray over that little morsel of a thought for awhile!
