“The government of Israel, because of our democratic tradition and because of the continuity principle, is going to abide by all previous commitments the former government took, including the acceptance of the road map to peace which will lead to a two-state solution,” Ayalon said, referring to the internationally backed 2002 peace plan.

If this is true, guaranteed he is in Heaven RIGHT NOW:
Fitzwater wrote in his memoirs about a time when Kemp lunged at Secretary of State James Baker III in the Oval Office. The housing secretary was “nagging, nagging, nagging” Bush to recognize the breakaway Soviet satellite of Lithuania and Baker, the color rising in his face, screamed an epithet at Kemp, Fitzwater recalled. Kemp bounded across the furniture and grabbed at Baker’s throat. They were pulled apart to avoid a fistfight.”Jack Kemp in His Own Words
There is another economy -- a second economy that is similar in respects to the East European or Third World socialist economies. It functions in a fashion opposite to the mainstream capitalist economy. It predominates in the pockets of poverty throughout urban and rural America. This economy has barriers to productive human and social activity and a virtual absence of economic incentives and rewards. It denies black, Hispanic and other minority men and women entry into the mainstream. This economy works almost as effectively as did hiring notices 50 years ago that read "No Blacks -- or Hispanics or Irish or whatever -- Need Apply."Meet ya at the Red House, Jack!

Key Senate panel sets brisk pasce for health system reform package
I'm sure. Swine Flu Akbar.
Note Grassley's subtle tune change since he switched senate panels:
Sen. Charles Grassley (Iowa), the committee's highest-ranking Republican, said tackling health care, which accounts for 16% of the nation's economy, is daunting. "This is the toughest and most needed issue that Sen. Baucus and I have ever been involved in."Majority of Iowans want public health insurance plan
Before the switch:
"A government-run option might sound good, especially in an environment where jobs are being lost, but Iowans would be better off with insurance market reforms that make coverage available and affordable to everyone," Grassley said in a statement released by his staff.Parents of children killed in China earthquake of May 12 arrested
