Person of the Day

FEBRUARY 22, 2007
TONY BLAIR who yesterday began to shut down the British end of the Iraq fiasco. "What all this means is not that Basra is how we want it to be.", he said, "but it does mean that the next chapter in Basra's history can be written by Iraqis." Blair, once again offering up a fine syntactical model for Bush. PS: For the second day running The NY Times keeps this story off of page one. Japanese Gyroball made it though.
