Busy, busy, busy. But it's finally the weekend. Spoke with Mom today - she and Dad are going to Aunt Mur's house today for Easter weekend - if I didn't have so much to do next week, I would have flown out for a brief surprise visit. Maybe next year.
Quick column tonight. But here's another good one from Scrappleface.
Security Council Requests U.S. Proposal to Vote Down
(2003-04-18) -- The United Nations Security Council wants the United States to submit a resolution regarding sanctions on post-Saddam Iraq. The council plans to debate any such motion for a number of months before voting it down.
U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said he fully expects the United States would then violate the will of the Council and act unilaterally to lift sanctions so the Iraqi people can rebuild their nation with a representative form of government.
"We know that the U.S. is desperate to regain legitimacy in the eyes of the world," said Mr. Annan, "but this will not occur on my watch. So, this is why we are eager for the U.S. to make a proposal."
