Lots happening this day.
The King of Saudi Arabia is dead. The problem is under Saudi law the thrones passes to the king's eldest brother, not his son. So unlike say, Jordan, where there is a chance of at least getting some younger, fresher leadership. We replace one 80-something in failing health with a new 80-something in failing health. Fricking Kings.
Bush appointed Bolton As U.N. Ambassador without Senate approval, which he can do when the Senate is out of session. Congrates we now have a guy who hates the UN and is a jerk to boot, as our Ambassador to the UN. Wonderful.
