Michael Novak had humble pie with his Thanksgiving meal.
Once upon a time, I followed a wise rule not to engage in predictions about future events; better just to wait for the reality to take shape, and to appreciate its contours as these unfolded.
Humble pie consists of a renewed resolution to go back to that rule. I must stick to what I do best, and not even try to compete with professionals in political prognostication. At least, not in writing.
I, of course, was careful to include my disclaimer up front so my Thanksgiving was guilt free.
