The one good precedent set by the Bush administration over the last 7+ years has definitely been the doctrine of preemption. Yesterday I was feeling crummy, but not quite sick, so I put in for a sub day, figuring I could cancel it if I wound up feeling better. When I got up today, I was feeling OK, but the kind of OK you know will start to wear off after about two hours in the vertical. So I'm taking the day off to lay around the house so I don't wind up getting really sick. Take that, germs!
And guess what?
After a nap this morning and a motorcycle ride out to Boulder City, I am feeling much better. Thanks, President Bush!
