Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Another curse

Although the Redskins performance indicated a Republican loss, there's another curse that would have a hard time coming true if Kerry had been elected. The Curse of Tecumseh is the alleged reason why every president elected in a year divisible by 20 has died or suffered an assassination attempt while in office.

Back in 1980, the Curse could have just said "died in office," but President Reagan didn't die in office. But since he did suffer an assassination attempt, there was a little "mission creep" of the curse, to expand to include this assassination attempt.

In 2009, the Curse of Tecumseh could join the Curse of the Bambino and the predictive powers of the Washington Redskins in the dustbin of coincidences.
