Two Items

United States Secret Service and Chilean security get into a loud dispute:

Several Chilean and American agents got into a pushing and shoving match outside the cultural center where the dinner was held. The incident happened after Bush and his wife, Laura, had just posed for pictures on a red carpet with the host of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife, Luisa Duran.

As Bush stepped inside, Chilean agents closed ranks at the door, blocking the president's agents from following. Stopping for more pictures, Bush noticed the fracas and turned back. He reached through the dispute and pulled his agent from the scrum and into the building.

Can you imagine Mr. John "appeasement-to-the-point-of-treason" Kerry stepping into the fracas? President Bush is at his best when steps out of the politician mode.

Meanwhile on the Left Coast:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Shoppers in San Francisco may soon be paying for their grocery sacks.

City officials are considering charging grocery stores 17 cents apiece for the bags to discourage use of plastic sacks.

And the [expletive] control freaks of the Left are mystified as to why we won't allow them to exercise power over us.
