It amazes me sometimes to see all the people who find themselves in positions of influence because they only make you wonder how they got there. That is true (for different reasons) for some of those who are geniuses as well. Meet the 27 yr old grad student that first joined a little-known company PayPal, then went on to co-invent YouTube. Some people are truly one in a billion.

Also, hopefully this will spell the end to the daily re-reports about the shootings in an Amish schoolhouse.

Realising that a two-state solution is the only way to stop what Israel really fears--a state in which there is an Arab majority--Rice heroically steps in to hail the need for Palenstinians be able to reach their potential. I find it all very fascinating:

I can only tell you that I, too, have a personal commitment to that goal because I believe that there could be no greater legacy for America than to help to bring into being a Palestinian state for a people who have suffered too long, who have been humiliated too long, who have not reached their potential for too long,” she said.
