Same remarkable gnarliness.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower/
Drives my green age; That blasts the roots of trees/
Is my destroyer.

Is this uprooter a stumper?

“Many reporters are well aware, even though Mr. Obama has described his connection to Ayers and Dohrn as "flimsy," that the senator's relationship with his radical Hyde Park neighbors is actually quite warm, even close.”

—Elizabeth Wurtzel (of all people) in today’s Wall St. J.

I do hope you stayed on the sidewalk as you went around that tree and didn't anything so dangerous as walk on the grass.

George: Thanks for the link to that article. Maybe this should be Obama's campaign theme song. It's also obviously where Ronald Reagan plagiarized "tear down this wall" from.

Ride the tiger?

Not Obama.

It's so weird the way the shadow of that tree seems to come up off the ground. M.C Escher lives!

I just read the Wurtzel op-ed. Notice how she stays cleverly on the fence? What is she saying, exactly? That Obama's association with Ayers/Dohrn is actually damning, but a pat on the back to us for being too grown-up to damn him for it? Charm excuses all? What?

That would be an awesome tree to play in as a small child.
