Bah!!

Al-Qaeda this, Al-Qaeda that, links to Al-Qaeda - pfffffft!

Seems that Al-Qaeda is as much under everybody's bed as Joseph
McCarthy's communists once were.  Whenever anything remotely whiffy
happens, Al-Qaeda is behind it. If your peanuts are all eaten or
your beer is flat, it's the devious work of shadowy Al-Qaeda.

The odd thing is that most everybody knows it for what it is.
Except of course for poor 'ole George W. Bush and his blind
followers - living in complete denial of reality.

So, when the *real* wolf happens along - who will be listening?
Nobody!

Speaking of the wolf - I wouldn't want to be holding too many US
dollars anyway - seems the arse is going to fall out of it - we
just don't know when.  Buy Gold!!

Later...
Love,
Ninja.
