It seems that once they got Bush back to his suite, he started speaking in complete sentences! (The idea for this was stolen from Dave Barry's year-end column in the Washington Post a couple weeks ago). = = = = = = = Subject: Bush illness From: email@example.com Original. At a dinner in Japan yesterday, President Bush threw up and passed out. This was caused by a mixup in the kitchens; that plate had been intended for Lee Iacocca.

From: email@example.com (Pat) What was the Last thing Miizawa said to Bush? Try the Fugu, IT's delicious. [Authors note.
