"In politics, what begins in fear usually ends in folly."
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Today, with hysteria over the president's speech to schoolchildren behind us (we hope), Washington will return to the business of freaking out about health care reform.
"What are fears but voices airy?
Whispering harm where harm is not.
And deluding the unwary
Till the fatal bolt is shot!"
~ William Wordsworth
