Back in '99 when I was in DC for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, I had a chance for an insider's tour of the White House. My SiL's neice was (still is) stationed there. Something to do with communications. She's in the Army. This tour got to go places that the general public could not, including the Oval Office. (The Pres was not "home" that evening. He was in NYC.) I passed it up for all the reasons you so eloquently stated below about the walking chunk of human debris who was the occupant of that piece of government housing at that time.
My brother, whose standards are different than mine, took the tour with his wife. They went into the Oval Office and even took a picture or two before somebody came running in and told them that was a big NO-NO.
This was all pre-9/11, of course, and I suppose these days you would really have to be someone special just to get any kind of a tour at all.
Anyway, I expect to get a little flak for this post but that's fine. Let it fly. I just wanted to thank you for your post.

Thank les. Yeah modern media tends to do that - focus on the incident, legal dance and sordid details, then ignore the real victims. Well i finally got a chance to express my opinion, regardless of how it makes me look. In this case i feel like a victim, just as surely as when a bigshot starts a war that kills real people and tries to con the world by lying. I have little love for our latter-day leaderschitz. Buncha spoiled rich snots like Ooday & Qusay and all the rest who wear us for shoes.
