She’ll no doubt mellow out over time… I’ll will end with a political joke - sorry I don’t have a scanner to show you th real thing. I saw a great cartoon in a local mag yesterday around the theme of "kefaya," Arabic for "enough," the catchword of the recent spontaneous demonstrations that have been springing up in Egypt and other parts of the Middle East. Picture a row of riot police lwith shields lined up like a solid wall along a city street. Two little boys are walking in front of them. One boy asks "Why are people saying kefaya?" The other boy replies "I think it’s a big game to know if there are enough to enclose the entire country." Pretty good for an autocracy, nu?  Posted by Hello
