The good of the (Caucasian) one over the good of the (swarthy) many

Tony Blair just canceled his vacation in order to address the very urgent crisis in the Middle East. Good on him. Swift action is what is needed in this situation.

So what is Dubya doing? Equally important stuff:

President Bush arrived here Thursday evening to begin a 10-day stretch at his Prairie Chapel ranch, his longest planned period away from Washington during this summer vacation season.

So let's make this clear: Cutting short a vacation in order to help cease a four-week conflict that has claimed the lives of over a thousand civilians is not an option.

However, cutting short a vacation in order to dramatically fly to D.C. and sign a bill into law for the purposes of saving a woman who has been in a persistent vegetative state for over a decade with no hope of recovery is downright necessary.
