I hope they either save that slip for the Smithsonian, or put it up for auction on Ebay.

I paid $1.809 a gallan for regular gas yesterday, so I'm in awe of the President's masterful handling of Iraq.

One can imagine the emotional impact of auctioning that slip of paper, then donating the proceeds to an important (preferably Iraq-related) cause. Makes all the recent to-do about Clinton seem like the sideshow it is.

I think the best result would be an auction as you described, after which the winner of the auction donated it to the Smithsonian.

Makes me proud to be an American.

Wait until you pay $1.699. At that rate, you might just drop dead on the spot.

It's getting close. I paid $1.729 on Thursday.

Here's a list of national gasoline prices via the Utah-based Flying J Truck Stop website. Doesn't exactly mirror the 2000 Red-Blue map in terms of highest/lowest prices, but it's pretty close, for whatever that's worth.

Might I make the observation that the next vice president has very handsome handwriting.

I can't make out the word following "Letter was ___"

Letter was WHAT from Bremer at 10:26 AM?

And who wrote "Let FreeDom reign!" in black felt pen? It's not her handwriting Is it?

Letter was "passed" from Bremer. And the annotation was from El Busho himself.

"save that slip for the Smithsonian"

NO, they would either hide it or destroy it. It would be safer in the hands of the DNC.

Uncle Bill is wrong. Now it belongs to the ages; the original should be housed at the US Archives.
