    Well good for them. It's better than making a mistake and not admitting it after the decision.

    Agreed. A good move on President Bush's part.

    What's so wrong about paying for an "indulgence". :rolleyes:

    There is precedent in history, perhaps not American history, but history none the less. :p

    That's my reading. The full monty. --And it's not a pretty sight. I'm glad they didn't try to convince us that Bush was wearing an amazing diaphonous cloth that could only be seen by those truly wise. Just pull your damn pants up, buddy.

    This is out of character for this guy. His last month in office and does something right! who would have thought?

    But does he have the authority to reverse himself? I smell Lawyers a running after this one.
