Are we there yet?

Bob Fischetti, a Freeburg, Pa., reader, writes:

"I'm impressed that President Bush came up with such an artful and precise term as 'time horizon' for Iraq --that is, a line that recedes as you approach it, so that no matter how far or fast you move, you can never reach it."

And now we can compare this with an energy policy that is somewhere over the rainbow

2. That was the first thing I thought of when I heard the term "horizon"
in this sense. Horizons are never reached.

3. He should have added...
His Dad's Thousand Points of Light part so that it would have been even more ridiculous.

6. In a Black Hole, the Event Horizon
In general relativity, an event horizon is a boundary in spacetime, an area surrounding a black hole or a wormhole, inside which events cannot affect an outside observer. Light emitted from inside the horizon can never reach the observer, and anything that passes through the horizon from the observer's side is never seen again.

Which explains exactly Bush's Iraq policy. And here we thought he didn't have a clue what he was doing!
