Pres. Bush tries to heal the divide

Today in Halifax, NS, Canada, President George W. Bush visited the Canadians in hope to pull together two sides in a bitter divide. The two sides have said some really bitter things and dug their heels in firm. Only the hope of common ground can work to prevail over the impass. This brave moderator must use humor to difuse the volitale debate. The President's opening remarks:
"Paul and I share a great vision for the future, two prosperous, independent nations joined together by the return of NHL hockey."
The joke was well taken by the audience and by PM Martin who applauded politely.
Sadly, it may take some Government mediation to solve the NHL Union labor dispute. Both countries are losing money and it would be a big help to stimulate the economy.
