Rice & frogleg casserole

A friend of mine, an Asian student studying in Paris, recently wrote me about the Condoleeza Rice visit. She said that the seating was all arranged ahead of time and the questions and answers were completely scripted. In the current political climate, I suppose this is hardly blogworthy anymore. These days, the U.S. papers are filled with stories of citizens being dragged out of town meetings due to suspicions that they might not fully support the president's policies. This being the case, the media would be doing us all a great favor if they would stop showing us these so-called "town-meetings" and "discussions with students." It's a waste of our precious time. If we want to know how the meeting turned out, we can read the script. Ahead of time.
