Queen Elizabeth II: "We lost the American colonies because we lacked the statesmanship to know the right time and the manner of yielding what is impossible to keep."
Mr. Bush (last night): "I will settle for nothing less than complete victory.... when the terrorists and Saddamists can no longer threaten Iraq's democracy, when the Iraqi security forces can provide for the safety of their own citizens, and when Iraq is not a safe haven for terrorists to plot new attacks on our nation."
Clearly, Mr. Bush has something to learn from the Queen beyond simple table manners.
I'll get back to posting regularly. The remodel of the kitchen is pretty much done, and I've gotten some work done on the Benz. I shoudl be ready to switch back over to working on the bus in the next few weeks, weather permitting.
