…opens today. I’m being cautiously optimistic, but at the same time, I realize that unless the US does some serious spanking, nothing will really come of this. I’ll be following the conference with low expectations, and a dash of hope.
(Honestly, though, this conference is a little like having an intervention for a couple that’s been fighting for 50 years. The dude kept the house and made the wife sleep in the basement, and has been stuffing his pool table, his ping pong rackets, and his treadmill in her space, all the while not allowing her to access the house’s water or electricity. And now, the landlord is coming in to drink beers with the dude and pretend to care about the wife’s silly tea cosies and needle point, when all in all, he just wants to look good before his term on the neighborhood association ends. It’s kind of… sad.)
