Back on 12-11-07 I made the following posting (Vision of Tomorrow)
That was 11 months ago. As we have passed the election, we know that half of it has come to pass. I don't wonder about much that I see in the future. I have started to become withdrawn, which I don't like the feeling of that.
Step smartly friends. Things are not as they seem and appearances are not as we wish them to be. I would suggest that you look forward with hope while bracing yourself for impact.
I would also be careful in your travels. The word Philadelphia sits very uncomfortable in me.
