Bye Bye George

In some ways I'm going to miss George's zingers. The top 20 in decending order courtesy of Yahoo news:
20. "Those who enter the country illegally violate the law." - Nov. 28, 2005
19. "We don't believe in planners and deciders making the decisions on behalf of Americans." - Sept. 6, 2000
18. "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." - Dec. 19, 2000
17. "Well, I think if you say you're going to do something and don't do it, that's trustworthiness." - Aug. 30, 2000
16. "I think we agree, the past is over." - May 10, 2000
15. "I understand small business growth. I was one." - Feb. 19, 2000
14. "This foreign policy stuff is a little frustrating." - April 23, 2002
13. "I want everybody to hear loud and clear that I'm going to be the president of everybody." - Jan. 18, 2001
12. "One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures." - Jan. 3, 2000
11. "I was proud the other day when both Republicans and Democrats stood with me in the Rose Garden to announce their support for a clear statement of purpose: you disarm, or we will." - Oct. 5, 2002
10. "I just want you to know that when we talk about war, we're really talking about peace." - June 18, 2002
9. "I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein." - May 25, 2004
8. "I firmly believe the death tax is good for people from all walks of life all throughout our society." - Aug. 13, 2002
7. "There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again." - Sept. 17, 2002
6. "The truth of that matter is, if you listen carefully, Saddam would still be in power if he were the president of the United States, and the world would be a lot better off." - Oct. 8, 2004
5. "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." - Sept. 29, 2000
4. "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." - Aug. 5, 2004
3. "Rarely is the questioned asked: Is our children learning?" - Jan. 11, 2000
2. "I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family." - Jan. 27, 2000
1. "They misunderestimated me." - Nov. 6, 2000
On second thought I'm not going to miss them at all.
Greetings from Hong Kong where its night when its day for you!

It's a pity I don't have the right to vote. It was a truly historic moment for everybody though.

Nothing to do with George, but happened upon this when checking out what's on in NYC next week.

Note: "When rumors of Katz’s closure circulate, everyone’s a preservationist—but when did you last dig into a pastrami on rye?"

If you are you: quite recently and quite soon?

T5 tomorrow, wish me luck.

Take care
