Start the School Year Right! Culture and History

Jimmy Carter has dedicated his life after the White House to conflict
resolution around the world. Presidents George Bush the elder and Bill Clinton
have campaigned together on behalf of communities devastated by Hurricane
Katrina. So how does President George Bush junior imagine spending his
retirement years?
"I can just envision getting in the car, getting bored,
going down to the ranch," he says. He also has big plans for making money. "I'll
give some speeches, to replenish the ol' coffers," says Mr Bush, who is already
estimated to be worth $20m. "I don't know what my dad gets - it's more than
50-75 [thousand dollars a speech], and "Clinton's making a lot of money".

Can anyone define "replenish the ol' coffers"? And does it have anything to do with filling the dark vile emptiness of your soul with humane selfless acts of redemption, working to repair the Constitution you broke, and apologizing to grammar? How about bringing back the almost 4000 Americans who died in iRaq?

Not sure there is much here to comment about...except to say: You have gracefully summed up the current vacuum of spirit our nation has "elected" to lead the country into hell.
So sad!
