YES, LUCY, YOU CAN BE IN THE SHOW:

Hello, Lucille (SETH LIPSKY, December 18, 2006, NY Sun)

What struck me about the occasion — which took place in the East Room of the White House and spilled over to the various public rooms for much of the morning — was its only-in-America quality. This starts with the idealistic name of the medal, which is given in a relatively low key, straightforward ceremony. As friends and family and the honorees gathered, Mr. Bush bounded on to the slightly elevated platform and greeted Mr. Sharansky with a tap on the stomach.

Made me cry. Only in America -- may it live on forever!

oj,
The entire proceedings, with all the worthy recipients of the MoF, were tarnished by the inclusion of worthless DC insider Norman Y. Mineta. Truly a loathsome little "person".

Mr. Mineta is easily the best Transport Secretary ever and one of the best cabinet secretaries of the modern era.

Mineta rose to the occasion when he needed to whatever his other short comings. Quietly and efficiently, every plane in our skies was safely brought to rest after the WTC was bombed. For that alone he deserves our thanks and our gratitude.
