BiBiJon,David Frum often snduos like an idiot, or at least someone not able
to make the simplest logical connection. For example, Frum thought it a
good idea for the US to be the enemy of both Iraq and Iran, when those
countries were enemies! And now, he posts quotes by Mike Mullen, claiming
that Iran “is the real loser” in recent ME events, and he has
Robert Gates in effect claiming al-Qaeda is the real loser. And al-Qaeda
and Iran are enemies.What is the constant thread we can discern? Israel!

I use the line "I bestow upon any man or woman the entrance to all the
gifts of the universe" as one of my credos. Whenever I use it my listener
is ALWAYS impressed. As Walt would say. within you is the ability to do
great things. He's bestowing the entrance only. As Emerson admonishes
"make the best of yourself because that's all there is of you.".
