Sunny Side Up

“Doc” Thompson put it best (and it fully applies today) in his NYT Op/Ed piece published (subscription required) January 1, 1974 and later included The Great Shark Hunt:

For now, we should make every effort to look at the bright side of the Nixon Administration. It has been a failure of such monumental proportions that political apathy is no longer considered fashionable, or even safe, among millions of people who only two years ago thought that anybody who disagreed openly with “the Government” was either paranoid or subversive. Political candidates in 1974, at least, are going to have to deal with an angry disillusioned electorate that is not likely to settle for flag waving and pompous waving.
