    It occurred to me that although this Reuter's piece is signed James Vicini, the writing has a certain hasty quality about it which - apart from the content - got me wondering about the backroom boys, that inimitable pair Jeff Guckert and James Moore. James Moore still has a, cough, job.  

    I saw the scene as though I'd been there: all God-given Authority is now touring Europe - security, top PR, legal bastards, heh heh, all 700 or 800 of absolutely essential minders have been displaced by a diversionary, recreational permanent-campaign event (there's a German word for it, which now escapes my memory). This is where dedicated backstops make a name for themselves: the leading lady has a broken leg and the understudy surges irresistibly forward. A Star is Born!

    Although Reuters' Writer (the righter rooter) seems to have scrambled the Original Intent and reorganised the piece to conform to the Style Book, somewhat, a US Citizen is now being tried by the United States' Government for a Thought Crime.

    Furthermore, if a Born-Again Chief Executive were actively organizing Armageddon on behalf of God Almighty Himself for any time he feels like it but preferably as soon as possible I find it extraordinary that such a one (while forbidding 2000 Burssels administrators from occupying their desks while he's in the building) would be putting off his personal Ascension to the Kingdom of Heaven in such an unseemly and deeply unjust manner.

    Go with the flow, George! Third time lucky: You could finally make a success of that boring day-job.
