    Hear Hear. Thanks, rugbymom!

         Can we now please backtrack and retroactively apply that to the case of
    W & Steven Hadley? Who owns these sixteen words?

         I remember telling my boss that evening, I'm going home now, to watch the our President [bleah] lie to a Joint Information Session of Congress. Then they will 'believe' him and go to War because we 'know' that our President would never flat-out lie like that. Misinform, Disinform, even misunderestimate, and the papers call him "mendacious," and if you don't know what that means, it sounds like it could be something good, like "spacious" or even "gracious." Why does the President get to lie to Congress?
         People who otherwise 'know' the actual facts still will put their misgivings aside because we 'trust' our leaders to lead us 'right,' long after they've been proven wrong.

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
