Found on Clay Burell's always fascinating site....
Asked to sum up Bush’s record on the [climate change] issue, France’s climate ambassador Brice Lalonde chose instead to pass on a story he had heard.
A man comes to the White House asking to see Bush. “He doesn’t live here anymore,” he is told. The next two days he comes again asking the same question, and receiving the same answer.
On the fourth day, the exasperated guard shot back: “I’ve already told you, he’s no longer here.”
“I know, I know,” the man replied. “But it’s such a pleasure to hear you say it.” (source)
In the news, Youngest's basketball team won handily, 60 - 8. She even scored two points!
Eldest has a field trip coming up this week. The near 200 kids from her grade are being trucked into BCN, they will go and do a set activity, and then be released into the Barri Gothic, unsupervised. They are mandated to remain in heards of at least two - analogies to lemmings come to mind- and are to meet back, we know not where, at a fixed time.
The man is concerned.
As he said, "It was easier when they were in strollers."
True, but I'm glad we're past that stage.
