The true story about Bosnia

This comes from an article by Peggy Noonan.

What struck me as the best commentary on the Bosnia story came from a poster called GI Joe who wrote in to a news blog: “Actually Mrs. Clinton was too modest. I was there and saw it all. When Mrs. Clinton got off the plane the tarmac came under mortar and machine gun fire. I was blown off my tank and exposed to enemy fire. Mrs. Clinton without regard to her own safety dragged me to safety, jumped on the tank and opened fire, killing 50 of the enemy.” Soon a suicide bomber appeared, but Mrs. Clinton stopped the guards from opening fire. “She talked to the man in his own language and got him [to] surrender. She found that he had suffered terribly as a result of policies of George Bush. She defused the bomb vest herself.” Then she turned to his wounds. “She stopped my bleeding and saved my life. Chelsea donated the blood.”

It's funny how your memory can play tricks on you. She probably remembers that little girl with flowers as the suicide bomber.

Rocky Point

I'm sitting just off the beach in Puerto Penasco enjoying the blue sky and water. Hope all is well in the rest of the world.
Teddy and Lauren were here for a couple of days. Sarah, Spencer, Claire & Colleen are still here. Lots of friends and acquaintances all over. Church in Spanish is fun. Mexican food in Mexico just tastes better.
Do you know what they call chinese food in China?
