No man is an
Iland, intire of itselfe;
every man is a peece of the Continent, a part
of the maine;
if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe
is the lesse,
as well as if a Promontorie were,
as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of
thine owne were;
any mans death diminishes me,because I
involved in Mankinde;
And therefore, never send to know for whom
the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

difficult for the West to influence or have peaceful relations with the
majority world. Most Americans I have met have been kind and
courteous, but many don't want to think or to know what the world is

language of Shakespeare. This born-again Christian peddles soft porn,
untruths, fear and hatred of
foreigners. On the other hand, if it suits his business, his
relationship with the Chinese has shown that he is quite
prepared to prostitute his media to those he considers to be more
than he is.
The only good thing about Bush's victory is that now the
home to roost, there is no-one else to blame. He will have
to sort out his own mess! Iraq is descending into worse chaos
because of lack of planning and military hamfistedness. The
budget deficit will cause huge economic problems, and the worsening
tropical USA might finally convince the some of the sceptics of global
warming. To paraphrase the old Chinese Curse - we are living in
