Now that it is all but certain who will be running for President in the two major parties -- and this writer hasn't voted for one of those candidates since Bob Dole in 1996 -- perhaps this would be a good time to talk about the promises of "hope" and "change." We've been hearing a lot about that from one of the candidates. For those with memories that go back more than thirty years, we have heard this message before. With this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy, let us take a moment to pause and reflect on the tendency of history to repeat itself, and the tendency of the huddled masses not to learn from that history.

After all, we know how THAT one turned out, don't we?
