"And now for something completely different...."

Forget it. I can't be bothered (*wink*) to finish what I started with all the movies, and Christmas and resolutions and blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, yadda (*wink again*). Maybe another time. What I really want to say is this:

I know Ariel Sharon is old, and it's very possible that he's had a stroke that it's going to take some time for him to recover from. But I also know that if you happen to be a political leader in that part of the world, sometimes you go into the hospital for one reason... but you may never come out for a different reason. I'm not saying dude's been a victim of an assassination attempt - but you remember what happened with Arafat? Come on. This is the Sharks and the Jets, man! Bloods and Crips! Corleones and Tattaglias! Anybody? Anybody?

Maybe Danny Concannon will find the hospital aide that remembers Sharon's checking in, but then doesn't, remembers giving him shots, but then doesn't, remembers his decline, then doesn't... and then gets transferred to another hospital and put on the local cricket team.

"it's not personal Sonny, it's strictly business" - Michael Corleone


although in that part of the world, what isn't personal?

Jamie's comment is a West Wing reference, isn't it? You two need help when it comes to that show. Watch The O.C. instead!

So am I understanding you correctly, that you're implying Sharon is the victim not only of an assassination attempt, but also a worldwide conspiracy to cover it up? Or that he's going to be assassinated while in the hospital? Maybe somebody will hire Jack Ruby to take out his assassin!
