Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wasn't Dan Rather the one who famously said
George Bush is the president, he makes the decisions, and, you know, as just one American: He wants me to line up? Just tell me where.... Whatever arguments one may or may not have had with George Bush the Younger before September 11, he is our commander-in-chief, he's the Man now. And we need unity, we need steadiness. I'm not preaching about it. We all know this.
What I found shoking about that was the notion that the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces was the Commander in Chief of all Americans including the press.

Most economists teach a theoretical framework that has been shown to be fundamentally useless. -- James K. Galbraith
