Disturbing News


To steal a line I heard in a movie called "Fierce Creatures", Bush is pronoid.
It's the opposite of paranoid.

It means that despite all evidence to the contrary, he thinks people like him!

As a registered nurse, when I hear someone fell, with little or no ability to protect his face, I ask what underlying conditions might exist that caused the facial injury. In a man of Bush's otherwise good health, I would suspect the involvement of alcohol. Drinkers often make up cover stories for these accidents. When there is a history of previous such facial injury accidents, as I think Bush experienced when he reportedly choked on a pretzel and fell without protecting his face, I become more suspicious. Is anyone investigating this?
Philip from PA

All I know, is that I don't know anyone that has had 3 facial injuries in the past four years except W.
