Michael L,

No, I am proposing that we not describe the selection of Wolfowitz
as "excellent" and a "delightful turn of events".  This is serious
business (no pun intended) with potentially very serious consequences
and needs to be taken seriously. What is needed is a critique of the
WB now that it will be headed by Neo-conservatives.  Delighting in the
selection of Wolfowitz does not help advance that critique or the
struggle against globalization, imho.

In solidarity, Jerry
