Reality crashes up against theory

One day in my college years, I got my copy of Foreign Affairs (yes, I was a nerd even back then) with the article titled: "Dwindling options in Panama." My roommate and I joked that the burden of reading the article was lifted when the U.S. launched Operation Just Cause only a day or so after the magazine arrived.

I got my new Atlantic magazine yesterday and there was an article with the lead: "Obama and McCain both say they want to usher in a new, less divisive brand of politics."

Yeah, I think I'll skip that one, too.
