Interrupted storytime

Several of us had been invited by Susan and her kids to join them in their room for storytime, and we were enjoying frozen custard, and lounging around with our stuffed animals, listening to Susan tell a story, when someone came in with a pretty badly distorted version of today's news.

He said talks had broken down and North Korea was threatening to lob a nuke at us. President Bush was going to speak soon.

Well, as far as I can tell, the news is that North Korea might test a nuclear weapon. President Bush is now speaking at the White House Correspondents Association dinner, and Fox News is showing it live. He's mostly talking about the coalition efforts in Iraq, and the journalists who've lost their lives.

He just sat down. I guess he's done. Nothing about North Korea. And, not surprisingly, not the usual joke-filled speech. (That was one of the fun things about The Sum of All Fears.)
