Snarky and Educational: Ask the Reader

One last reference to Slate today: a great post explaining how Palin gets history wrong and is trying to get the US to act like the British did in1773. While the British did then lose the colonies that would become the US, I guess it would be only fair to point out that the British did manage to dominate for another century or so.  And that raises the question of whether an enddate of American hegemony of 2100 might be better or worse than we have any reason to expect?

I will ponder it a bit, but what say you, the readers?
