4.  We've had more than an earful of talk (mostly from some cranky old guy from Arizona) about how UN Ambassador Susan Rice is unfit to be our next Secretary of State.  That being said, here is an op-ed piece that is in support of Ms. Rice and addresses the very concerns that have been discussed about her:


"The penalty for success is to be bored by the people who used to snub you."
       -- Nancy Astor
"Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything." 
       -- Charles Kuralt
"It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office." 
       -- H. L. Mencken
"The crux... is that the vast majority of the mass of the universe seems to be missing." 
       -- William J. Broad
