Sigh!

15 10 2008

I would like to begin this morning by reading you a little weather report:
“… dirty water and black snow pour from the dismal air to …the putrid slush that waits for them below.”

Now that is not a description of Boston, Chicago, New York, or even Washington, D.C. It is from Dante’s “Inferno,” a 600-year old vision of damnation.

But doesn’t it sound familiar?

Isn’t it a forecast that fits almost any large American city today?
