Mexico, Canada partnership underway with no
authorization from Congress
Despite having no authorization from Congress, the Bush administration has
launched extensive working-group activity to implement a trilateral agreement
with Mexico and Canada.
The membership of the working groups has not been published, nor has their
work product been disclosed, despite two years of massive effort within the
executive branches of the U.S., Mexico and Canada.

According to a Reuters story out of Kiev, when the zoo was crowded with
visitors, a man lowered himself by rope into the lion enclosure and walked up to
the lions shouting, "God will save me if he exists," thus proving
himself to be a man of faith. Unfortunately, the lion, who had more faith,
prayed "God give me strength to rip out this guy's throat." Which the
lion then proceeded to do.
