Paging Dr. Perfect

quoting, on Frist

He works round the clock, often gets by on four hours of sleep, has three sons, yet still finds time to volunteer, operating on AIDS patients in Africa and checking on monkeys’ hearts at the National Zoo. He was a calming presence during the anthrax attacks on the Hill and the bioterror debates.

dc:This really could shift the landscape it Frist became a real independent force one . If the country got into deep trouble before 2004 he might move even faster .

ASHGABAT, Dec 18 (Reuters) – Afghanistan will sign a deal next week with its neighbours Pakistan and Turkmenistan to lay the groundwork for a key regional gas pipeline that will run through its territory, a Turkmen official said on Wednesday.

The long-awaited pipeline, to run from the Turkmen gas field of Dovletabad to the Pakistani town of Multan, is seen as a major boost for Turkmenistan, which holds abundant natural gas reserves but lacks export outlets.

Afghanistan, devastated by 23 years of Soviet occupation and the civil war that followed, is likely to profit from hundreds of millions of dollars in gas transit fees.

The deal to be signed by the three states during a December 26-27 meeting in the Turkmen capital Ashgabat will set up an international consortium to build the pipeline. Gas transits via Afghanistan and pipeline safety will also be on the agenda. …

dc: it will be interesting if there are no outsider corporate owners.

my take on the Lott afair so far: it is unclear if it will lead t a deeper examination of real positions, including many inthe bush whitehouse and supreme court, or whether it willl lead to Bush being able to claim that the republican’s really are the party of inclusion.

I can hear one possibility: Bush, ‘OK, now the republican’s have come clean on race, when will the democrats do it?”

If it is inclusion, inclusion in what?

Where Am I?
