Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

The poetry of numbers. Take, for instance, 41. A nice number--prime, Tom Seaver's retired jersey number, the year Pearl Harbor was bombed. Also the number of George HW Bush's order in the line of US Presidents. And finally, it's the percent of Americans who approve of George W. Bush (the 43rd).

The last time the percentage that said the country was on the wrong track was as high as it is now was back in November 1994. Then, Republicans swept into control of both houses of Congress for the first time in decades.

What else do you think the number 41 augurs?
