On the Web: Everyone goofs sometimes

The only safe prediction to make is that you really can't predict things.

Still, people keep making predictions. Now there's Wrong Tomorrow,  a Web site that attempts to hold feet to the fire for pundits, authors, politicians and anyone else so sure of himself or herself that a prediction might spout forth. Among the big boo-boos:


"Two years from now, spam will be solved." - Bill Gates in 2004.

"We could be looking at $10-a-gallon gas this winter." - Matt Simmons, 2005



The Spokesman-Review's political team keeps a critical eye on local, state and national politics.
