Our Waterloo Quote of the Day

"Not yet a third of the way through the president's "first 100 days," he and we should remember that it was not FDR's initial burst of activity in 1933 that put the phrase "100 days" into the Western lexicon. It was Napoleon's frenetic trajectory in 1815 that began with his escape from Elba and ended near the Belgian village of Waterloo."

-- George Will, in today's Washington Post, concluding a column on the rush to pass a stimulus package with multiple goals, some of them having to do with stimulating the economy. It is very much worth reading.
