All right, rant alert!
I sometimes wonder where our priorities went—with George Bush in town, normal life has been thrown out of gear and board exam students have been told to plan their schedule around his! I remember all to well having to turn up at a strange centre for your first public examination… and you DO NOT want to deal with guaranteed traffic snarls! And certainly not for this particular person!
But what was even more annoying were his sniffer dogs nosing around in Rajghat (Gandhi’s cemetery). I don’t get worked up about things like this, but honestly, it’s not like he can walk around questioning other people’s security! (Reminder: where did 9/11 happen?!)
What eludes me is why we are putting up with this sort of thing from him? Why are we laying out the red carpet for the person widely acknowledged as the world’s biggest terrorist? He’s not got too many friends left, so it’s not like he can alienate anyone…
