THE WORLD Health Organization said tobacco could kill a billion people by century’s end if governments don’t adopt anti-smoking policies. They should make up their minds. Either they think overpopulation is a problem or they don’t.
DICK CHENEY and John McCain spoke to the conservative conference in Washington last week. There was a lot of bad blood. Sen. McCain had just said he wants to keep troops in Iraq for 100 years and the vice president took him to the woodshed for setting timetables.
