    That p-word is starting to stick to Bush. Here's Sheila Samples:

    In Britain this week, Prime Minister Tony Blair was not only afflicted with a palpitating heart but with cold feet as he was forced to cancel plans next month for Bush to prance triumphantly along the Mall with the Queen, which is the traditional high point of any world leader's state visit. According to the UK Telegraph, "President Bush's trip is the first full state visit of an American president since the Queen came to the throne 52 years ago."

    Because of the anti-war sentiment in Britain, Bush cannot even arrive at the palace by motorcade, but will surreptitiously helicopter in and out to avoid protesters who plan to line the road routes. The article said, "Other proposed events have also been curtailed or cancelled, and he will not address Parliament because of fears of a boycott by MPs."

    This from First Coast News,

    "...Arbitrary power is, like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken..." -- Abigail Adams, 1776
