When I was in high school, there were a number of things that I believed to be true:
- The Cold War would never end.
- The Berlin Wall would always be there.
- There would be war in the Middle East.
- We would be annihilated in Nuclear Winter.
- A black man would never be president.
I'm very pleased that the soon-to-be President Barack Obama understands the true meaning of plate lunch and a zip min.
