Extra Aqua Vitae Nulla Salus


The UN

At the news conference this afternoon, Mr. Annan was asked whether it
was time for him to step down, given the oil-for-food problem and
several other embarrassing revelations about the organization.

"Hell no," he said, and added: "It is not unusual that an institution
this size, whether it's government in this country or companies, that
problems do arise."
Hmm. Nothing like a life-long bureaurocrat to remind us that gigantic
complex systems (NASA, etc.) are bound to fail from time to time,
especially crippled earth-sized amoebic systems like the UN.

I wonder how many people out there heard Koffi say "Hell" and thought,
"Yeah Koffman! You so sassy! Stick it to them anti-amoebics!"
