In the midst of my mourning for DFW, Friedman's bit on "drill, baby drill" (one of the most frightening moments at the RNC) gave me a laugh with a Wallace-esque scenario.

From the Times:
Why would Republicans, the party of business, want to focus our country on breathing life into a 19th-century technology — fossil fuels — rather than giving birth to a 21st-century technology — renewable energy? As I have argued before, it reminds me of someone who, on the eve of the I.T. revolution — on the eve of PCs and the Internet — is pounding the table for America to make more I.B.M. typewriters and carbon paper. “Typewriters, baby, typewriters.”
His (Friedman's) new book should arrive at my door today.
