On the brink

The talks have degenerated into little more than growling and baring of teeth. I must summon all of my diplomatic powers to keep this peace process from falling apart. Rabbi Jake and I have pulled out all the stops, placing a phone call to our secret weapon. As I type this, the humanitarian odd couple of 2005 -- George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton -- are speeding down the highway in their jointly owned Winnebago. We must pray that they arrive before it is too late.

If my dog Boomer, a Christian, can help in any way please let me know. It's only a three hour flight from California to Texas

We will await your calling...

This is my first visit to your temple, Father Mugsy, and I must confess I don't have a dog. Also, I used to be a Catholic. Well, I say 'used to be', but somehow it never seems to go away. If I did have a dog, it would probably enjoy sniffing the hindquarters of the dog of Shimon Peres, and if no-one was looking it might also push its snout up the bottom of Mahmoud Abbas. It would certainly look at the the dog of Ariel Sharon with great wariness. And, indeed, weariness.
I only hope it never wants to be a suicide doggy. How would I explain that to my little boy?

The odd couple...which one is Felix or Oscar?

I think George has to Felix...throwing up, wimpy thing...

And Bill has to be Oscar, you know the cigars..

I hope that the BigBuddhaPuppy party can be part of the next conference...

Thank you all for your prayers. Welcome to the congregation, Graeme. Being a former/current Catholic, you may have met my friend the pope. He stops by on this blog from time to time.

Bigbuddhapuppy, I have never seen The Odd Couple. I am only 4 years old, so it is a little before my time. But I would welcome you at the next peace conference, so long as you do not attempt to steal my thunder. The Nobel prize will be mine, and mine alone.
