"It's Montana, if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes ... it will change". How many times have you heard this? On a tunnel construction job during a college summer "vacation" in Massachusetts, I was riding the worker shuttle truck up to the the job on a miserably cold windy swing shift when I heard a colleague announce that we should not be concerned, because "If you don't like the weather in Massachusetts, just wait five minutes, and it will change."
So I guess the prophetic cliche is not exclusive to Montana. The good news -- this same comforting statement is perfectly adapted to our new President. And not being a fan in general, I must say that I do take heart in knowing that you can't rely on anything he might posit in terms of moral or political opinion, because the only true reliability is that some sort of reversal is statistically within 3 percentage points of absolute certainty. We'll just have to take it.
