Wouldnt it be great if all the world leaders like Yeltsin and Clinton and Rubin and Arafat and the others formed their own Internet mailing list? They could then sit at their computers and chat about the problems of the world and who knows, maybe they would begin to realize that we all truly truly live in a global village. Excerpts from the world-leaders mailing list archive: From email@example.com Yasha, I have to say that Itzhak might have a point about the Islamic militants, although, Itzhak, you may not be helping matters by not withdrawing your troops. Bad move, IMO. From firstname.lastname@example.org If you think you have trouble with your congress, Bill, you ought to be over here. At least Newt doesnt carry a gun. Or does he? BTW, anyone heard from John lately? Is he lurking or having access problems? From Irabin@telaviv.israel.me Sorry about our F2F the other day, Yasser. Blame it on the aides. And Bill, Yasser and I think your state guy Ross may be getting in the way a bit. From email@example.com No problem, Itzhak. I'll send you a private e-msg. Boris, I was FOTFL reading your Chechnya speech. Don't you guys ever learn? And so on. Now tell me, would people chatting together like this want to drop bombs on each other? Maybe flame wars, but surely not real ones.
