Tomorrow, I am taking a break from this blog. I will return on the first of May. Part of my brief hiatus is for a silent vigil for the Virginia Tech victims. I also need a break from blogging tragedies like today's shootings where an unnamed gunman wounded several and killed three people at the Ward Parkway shopping mall near Kansas City. Police shot and killed the gunman.

First Paul Wolfowitz....

Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias, a Bush appointee, who was the director for United States foreign assistance and administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development has resigned his post. Mr. Tobias, who was once was a top administrator for the Bush international AIDS policy that promoted abstinence and withheld grants from grants from agencies unless they swore that they opposed prostitution, quit his job at the USAID because he was utilizing an escort service that specialized in "legal game-playing of a sexual nature" according to the owner of the service, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who is now arraigned in federal court for running a prostitution ring. Mr. Tobias, who is married, in his tenure as an administer for the Bush AIDS policy, ran an agency whose dogma was refraining from sex and partner fidelity.

I wonder how Mrs. Tobias feels about all this...
