And the road goes on forever

Until it doesn't.

The group intended its Beacon concerts in March of this year to be its last, but the run was cut short by four shows because Mr. Allman developed bronchitis. That final stretch of four concerts plus an added two were what ended at 1:25 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29. It was 43 years to the day that Duane Allman, Mr. Allman’s brother and the group’s first leader, died. Several of his guitars were played for the occasion.

Even K-thug's come around.

But now the shoe is on the other foot: Obama faces trash talk left, right and center – literally – and doesn’t deserve it. Despite bitter opposition, despite having come close to self-inflicted disaster, Obama has emerged as one of the most consequential and, yes, successful presidents in American history. His health reform is imperfect but still a huge step forward – and it’s working better than anyone expected. Financial reform fell far short of what should have happened, but it’s much more effective than you’d think. Economic management has been half-crippled by Republican obstruction, but has nonetheless been much better than in other advanced countries. And environmental policy is starting to look like it could be a major legacy…
