"What is it, dad?"
"Your cat died...."

Sorry for the obscure Phish reference, but this news just in, the First Cat, George and Laura's 18 year old cat, 'India', died. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have no love for George W's presidency. However, given his miserable poll ratings, the lack of respect shown to him by other world leaders, and just how dejected he looks lately... to then have your cat die on top of it... I actually feel genuinely sorry for the guy, and I'm not being facetious, honestly. It's not the cat's fault its owner almost single-handedly drove our country into the ground.

My own cat's name is China, so they're ... like ... neighbors or something.

R.I.P. India
