The Dark Days of August

Dr. Victor Davis Hanson provides some perspective on what has truly been a dark, depressing month:

The Greeks believed that the rising of Sirius, the Dog Star, in August made the sun grow hot, and hence inaugurated a period when people acted a little crazy — as we ourselves all saw the past few weeks.

But beside the natural tragedy of Katrina, the panic of rising gas prices, and other assorted August calamities such as the stampede that cost hundreds of lives in Iraq, there were also other depressing events over the course of the month.
