This Land of Milk, Honey and Obscure Metaphors

Condi Rice says it's "time to shake the trees" over Darfur. I like the sound of that line. It's tough, it's direct and it inspires action. But I am a little curious about the resulting mail-trail in Ms. Rice's office:


Dear Staff members,

Re Darfur/Sudan, it's official: time to shake the trees.

Sincerely,

***

Boss,

Re your Darfur memo: which trees?

Confused,

***

Dear Staff members,

The ones bearing large, hard fruit. What did you think?

Disappointed,

***
Chief,

No trees in Darfur match the description.

Perplexed

***

Dear Staff Members,

Never mind. Just send in the 101st Airborne.

Sincerely

i don't believe this...

"Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life
Waiting your time, you're more than just a wife
You don't want to do what your mother has done
(she has done)
This is your life, this new life has begun
It's your day -- a woman's day
It's your day -- a woman's day"

etc...
