We were like stuffed geese that year, fat and unhappy with right wing values, environmental destruction, and massive tax cuts forced down our throats.
Little did we know how much worse things could get. Little did we know that the scared little boy reading The Pet Goat had, one month earlier, contemptuously dismissed the CIA agent bearing the warning “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US.” Little did we know the anthrax attacks would never be solved. Little did we know Cheney and Rumsfeld were already planning the Iraq invasion.
I don’t think the foie gras turns out too well if you terrify the geese.
