THE JERUSALEM Post reported President Bush wants to attack Iran. Iran is three times the size of Iraq, its nuclear facilities are underground beneath thick concrete and the population is heavily pro-American. You thought nothing could make the Iraq policy look good.
PRESIDENT BUSH revealed he’s given up golf out of respect for families who have lost loved ones in Iraq. It’s a wise move. He doesn’t want the families to see how fast he can get out of a sand trap when Dick Cheney’s not making the decisions.
THE LABOR Department said thousands of illegal immigrants are returning to Mexico due to the construction slump. Not everyone’s happy. With Mexicans going home and Charlton Heston gone it’s practically impossible to get your ceiling painted.
HILLARY CLINTON is begging superdelegates for their votes. They are elected officials and party elders who are given enough convention votes to overturn an elected nominee. Years ago a group of well-connected politicians would determine the nominee in a smoke-filled room. Today there’s no smoking.
THE CANNES Film Festival is held this week on France’s Mediterranean coast. They are screening the year’s upcoming movies. For two weeks a year, this seaside resort becomes the world capital of greed, vanity and ego. Then it returns to Los Angeles.
