    It would probably be best not to allow the guy, who can't even stay upright on a Segway, to do anything requiring dexterity - including holding a dog.

    little mistakes like that can open a person's eyes about their own egotistic sense of invulnerability;

    I fell down some steps recently, carrying my daughter, and it makes you think about everything differently . . . like sometimes when you bang your head

    maybe he will 'see' what a foolhardy miserable arse he has been with regards to other people's lives (entrusted to his slippery hands) and with regards to what should have been delicate diplomacies?

    . . . but I doubt it . . . . why would he start to think reflectively now? he's never had to . . . not with silver spoon all his life

    I wouldn't trust him anymore after that. Oh wait! I already don't trust him!

    PS. Glad the dog wasn't hurt.

    In other news today Howard Dean said that he would reverse the "dog dropping" policy of the Bush administration. He also declared that Kerry had supported Bush dropping the dog even though the dog did not represent an immediate threat. Dean did declare that the dog was likely evil though and that he would drop any evil dogs when they did represent an immediate threat.

    Kerry replied that he had voted based off of information given about the dog from the administration and in hind sight, the dog looked like it was only growling and thus should not have been dropped until it was barking or possibly biting.

    Colin Powell released the above photo to AlJazeera in an attempt to prove to the world that the dog had been dropped and no longer constituted a threat.
