Oops. I knew I was gonna forget to change that! Grrr...
As far as the questions about Monaco, let's wait until Phil shows up to answer specifics. If I try to do it, I'll probably get it wrong. I think they wrote a new law just for Ted that would allow them to "legally" hold him as long as they want with no trial.
As far as what reasons the politicians have cited for not talking to Monaco about it... That's a dang good question and one I would like an answer to. As I understand it, Ted's representative, Sue Kelly, has been very helpful and has done everything she can to help. It's the higher-ups like Secretay of State Colin Powell, Henry Hyde, and President Bush who need to be contacted about this.
Although I don't consider myself a "Bushie," I'm a Bush supporter. I like him; I voted for him; and I even have a personalized, autographed photograph of him hanging proudly in my office despite the negative results it may have on my chances of promotion. But this thing with Monaco and their scapegoating of Ted should really be addressed by our Administration. A "behind-the-scenes" approach is fine. Just do something!
