Into the (Long) Home Stretch

Goodish news for those of you looking forward to the end of George W. Bush's presidency: there are fewer than 1000 days left! As of today, Bush has 999 days remaining in office. That may be an eternity to some, but the psychological effect of breaking the 4-digit barrier is bound to take the edge off.

You can get one for yourself at backwardsbush.com. Inexplicably, this clock is set to Atlantic Daylight Time (one hour ahead of Eastern), which serves the fine people of Halifax, Nova Scotia and environs, but no one at all in the realm of King George II itself.
