The K Chronicles looks forward from 2000. When you put it all together like that, it's no wonder we're tired. (PS. K did get married and he and his wife have one son.)
Even the jihadi are getting tired.
I can't imagine getting away from the Bush regime. In my bones I feel the US will elect Bush III (aka McCain). If, by a miracle, Obama does win ... well, it will be like awakening from a long nightmare.
