should send Oliver North of Contra-scandal fame to Iran and North Korea, with or
without a Bible and key-shaped cake, and talk seriously to them about matters of
mutual interest, such as making sure that weapons go to US-licensed freedom
fighters. The Israelis can provide airlift and service agreements as they did
for Irangate, and that will hush any objectors in the US Congress.
If this seems a little far-fetched, one has to consider the alternatives. Perhaps the only thing worse than an overtly nuclear North Korea are the consequences of letting the Bush administration provoke Pyongyang with a naval blockade or other attacks on sovereignty.

Knowing is putting good advice like that into practice without thinking about it. I did that today. And actually felt better, without the apology.
Thank you for writing, it brightened my day.

This photo shows a new bird that has been discovered in a previously unexplored Andean cloud forest, conservation groups have announced, in Bogota, Colombia, Monday, Oct. 9, 2006.
