Friedman gets it in one.
I really didn't like this guys' last book. Or the one before that. Maybe it's the way he writes or maybe it's the way he thinks everything should be explained through a not-as-clever-as-he-thinks-it-is little story or anecdote. In either case, the guy does hit the truth nine times out of ten (albeit sometimes with a nerf-bat and sometimes with a small East African marsupial) and his opinion in the NYT today is a slam dunk. Our energy policy isn't failing because it's bad, it's failing because it doesn't EXIST and no one elected to build one has done anything about it, besides make the problem worse. Oh, and Hillary and John McCain wouldn't know an energy policy if it tried to make out with them.
