Now, at this point, there are undoubtedly some of you who have become very concerned for my well-being. You may wonder if I have ingested a banned substance or perhaps you might speculate that I have had insufficient exposure to sunlight during the course of this harsh winter. Of course, there will be others who could care less and just as soon see me descend into madness. Well, whether you care about my good health or not, I can say with sound mind and without a moment’s hesitation that I am predicting the Chicago Cubs will win the 2011 World Series.
Believe me when I tell you that the cataclysmic nature of this prediction is not lost on me. The Cubs, after all, have not appeared in a World Series since 1945 and haven’t won it since Roosevelt was President. That would be Teddy Roosevelt. So why should this year be any different than the 102 years which preceded it?

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
