You're Grounded, Mr. President
On Thursday, Pres. Bush expressed his support for the troops in Iraq via video-conference and telephoned former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to wish her a happy 80th birthday. No official word was available on why the travel-happy president conducted the photo-ops remotely, though unsubstantiated reports have circulated that V.P. Dick Cheney took away Pres. Bush's Air Force One privileges after the chief executive brought the presidential plane home from his eighth trip to the Gulf States with a sizeable, unexplained dent and an almost completely empty gas tank.
