Dear Readers:

We have some great entries into our year-end contest to come up with the best haiku, limerick or one-line encapsulation of either the Bush or Obama administration’s dealings with the Bomb.

We have not yet explored the depths of your creativity and playfulness. Contest entries are welcome until midnight, December 30th — midnight being as variable as your time zone. Missing so far: a one-line characterization of the Bush and Obama years. Hard to do.
