Announcing a New Dept. at FmH

I am pleased to note the burgeoning media attention to so-called “Rebuffs” to our valiant president’s efforts to save the world. Here is a Google search on “rebuff Bush” or “rebuffing Bush”, which I hope you will find edifying. Thus, it is with pride that I inaugurate the “Bush-Rebuffed” Dept. at FmH with what (below) is the first in an irregular but I hope steady stream of pertinent entries. Please feel free to watch the jargon and send me blinks. [thanks, abby]

Bush-Rebuffed Dept.

132 Mayors Embrace Kyoto Rules: “Unsettled by a series of dry winters in this normally wet city, Mayor Greg Nickels has begun a nationwide effort to do something the Bush administration will not: carry out the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.

Mr. Nickels, a Democrat, says 131 other likeminded mayors have joined a bipartisan coalition to fight global warming on the local level, in an implicit rejection of the administration’s policy.” (New York Times via abby)
