I’m back home, and still have to post the last two travel entries. I’ll get to that either today or tomorrow.
In catching up on the political discourse that occurred while I was away, I came upon this entry. On my flights returning home, I had a few conversations with other passengers on economic-related topics, telling them how I was lucky to have found a job by the end of 2000 as many college grads were having their offers rescinded prior to the summer of 2001. This seemed to confuse some very intelligent people, as it has now been forever linked in the consciousness of most Americans that the recission was caused in large part by 9/11. The unfortunate thing is that it was already well underway, and was even beginning to rebound. Granted it excaberated the recission, but it certainly wasn’t the root cause.
The non-stop GOP talking points win again.
