Thought of the Day

A flying shoe has become the defining moment of George W Bush's presidency. It was aimed at and meant for Bush junior only. It was not intended as an insult to the American people. I have letters from readers that share with me this sentiment. The real insult is to have a geek like Bush leading a great democracy like the USA.
Americans must have heard all the possible jokes about the flying shoe. I have a good Arab joke that needs some explaining: After the shoe incident in Baghdad Arab leaders decided to hold their press conferences in mosques (Muslims take off their shoes before entering mosques to pray).
