"The catastrophic tsunami wave that has devastated so much of southern Asia has even killed more than a hundred people on the east coast of Africa, more than 4,000 miles away. Two questions: First, what country has done the most to help the victims of this natural disaster? Second, what country has been criticized most for not doing enough?
The answer to both questions is the United States of America."

First of all ... let's get this question settled at the beginning. The AARP is running full-page ads in major American newspapers today saying that George Bush intends to cut Social Security benefits. The AARP is engaging in its usual tactic of trying to frighten the Depends right off of our wizened class by making them believe that their Social Security checks are going to get smaller if George Bush gets his way. That's a lie. It is not true. There is no proposal on the table, nor will any proposal be made that would reduce the Social Security benefits to any retired person or anyone nearing retirement. The AARP knows this, but they continue with their ad campaign nonetheless.
