Deja vu...

Coming to grips with my aging process today (although hardly contemplating the alternatives), and I am increasingly struck by the wisdom buried in all those cliches about knowing history, not repeating it, and all that stuff....

Well, perhaps my reflections have less to do with turning 59 than with reading Ellsberg's book on Vietnam and then picking up the newspaper to read about Pentagon reports stating that the Iraqis are not yet read to go it alone.... Eerily familiar stuff -- seems to me that (deny it as we might) this is turning into a replay of Vietnam in many respects....
