Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

Well said and astute:

On his visit to London this week, President Bush is likely to be greeted by as many as 100,000 demonstrators objecting to the United States' policy in Iraq.

U.S. presidents visiting England on a state visit typically ride with the queen in an open carriage to Buckingham Palace, but it was concluded that it would be better for Bush to travel in an armored limousine flown in from the United States. Presidents often deliver a formal address to Parliament, but this time it was cancelled out of concern that Bush might get heckled -- as happened when he spoke to Parliament in Australia.

Imagine if Bush were visiting someplace where the United States weren't so popular.
