Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
Forgot to mention
Copious and very funny Air America advertisements all over the subway. When we were walking from the Times Square shuttle to Grand Central terminal, there was a gallery of right-wingers with funny little quotes over their faces. You could see Cheney's smirk, but his face was covered by a dialog balloon that said "Axis of Enron". Over Tom Delay's face, it said "The FCC wants a 10 second delay. We wish."
