China, France, Germany, Russia. I think this was a pretty good one from James Lileks, read it if you please.

A little side note: Bush's address to the War College and his mangling of "Abu Ghraib". I was listening to the speech live on NPR. I'm told on screen he looked tight and nervous. He didn't sound too bad on radio. But then the telepromter flashed up those two words. It came out "Abu...abu...Grub". Just like that. I will not deny that it was little less than excruciating to hear. How fiendishly embarrassing can you get?
