Irrational Exuberance? by John Derbyshire

Reader comment on item: A Neo-Conservative's Caution

Submitted by Mr. Downtown (United States), Mar 10, 2005 at 10:02

"It's March and pessimists are already behind."

Latest article by John Derbyshire, National Review writer known for his palo-con-ish pessimism about the US middle east excursions, is a good companion piece to Mr. Pipes' words of caution.

Basically: things can still go very wrong, but so far things have been going much better than very many intelligent people ever expected.
