The Corner

The one and only.

Back to the Future?


On my morning commute, I was behind a car sporting a “McGovern-Shriver 1972” bumper sticker.  And immediately next to it in the congested traffic was a car with an SDS sticker.  (Update:  A D.C.-area reader tells me that the SDS sticker I saw was probably for a local swim club.)  

A more positive omen:  The last time (and, so far, the only time) the Phillies won the World Series was in 1980, just before Ronald Reagan’s come-from-behind victory in the presidential election.
