Hat's Off

Hats off to President Obama for his speech today on nuclear non-proliferation, and aiming for a nuke-free world. And, especially, for emphasizing that a world without nuclear weapons isn't going to happen anytime soon. Isn't it refreshing to have someone in the White House who doesn't like to lie.

Too bad North Korea leader Kim Jong had other plans for the weekend than to listen to Mr. Obama's speech, but this latest rocket test surely didn't come as a surprise to anyone. While a former president, George W. Bush, was busy chasing Saddam Hussein, and introducing Al Qaeda to Iraq, Kim Jong had just enough time to explore those weapons of mass destruction we never did find in Baghdad.
