Bush’s Farewell Address tonight 1.15.09

If you’d like a peek at the horoscope for tonight’s address scheduled for 8:00 pm est, check it out at:
where you’ll also find a link to the text of George Washington’s Farewell Address of Sept 17, 1796 – for comparison’s sake. Or I should probably say, for contrast’s sake.
