You'll have to get there before my wife and I do... Darn, the babysitter's booked.<P>Personally, I think the sum should be <I>more</I>, and the US should provide vehicle transportation to some friendy more-or-less close place, like, say, France.<P>Then you mount a camera on the pickup hood of every redneck in America, and broadcast the fun.<P>See, this way, everybody's a winner. The participants get to be on TV every day for a few weeks, the military saves a bunch of money, the American public gets to do what it does best (watch TV and root for the good guys) and it gives just a whole new meaning to the term <I>vigilante justice</I>.<P>And -- this is the key part -- it exposes the entire Middle East to a very clear picture of what America is. In a way nobody in the world will ever forget. Uniquely American.<P>I like this plan even better than my original plan of chaining all known accomplices to posts in Grand Central Station.<P>------------------
