    He was talking about Mr. Castro's resignation.

    He looks very very unwell.

    Is he is ill?

    Maybe he felt uncomfortable surrounded by so many Canadians.:rolleyes:

    Give me time, I'll tire of it eventually. I promise.

    You know this means that I have therefore slept with several Canadians. And I thought I was saving myself.

    Seriously, he did look like a sick man.

    Perhaps Karma does really exist and he is tasting just a morsel of the misery he has spread around the world!

    The thread title is possessed of a dangling participle... WHO is in Rwanda...? Yourself or President Bush??!! :biggrin1::tongue::tongue:

    Given where he is maybe something stung him, the reality of African politics possibly.

    Or perhaps the [SIZE=-1]Ifishimu* [/SIZE]weren't cooked quite to his taste, or perhaps someone told him what they were.:smile:

    * or whatever the local word is.

    Strictly speaking, English has no equivalent to a Romance-language gerundive...

    Some peeps have said he has presenile dementia... effectively, early onset Alzheimers.

    It seems like both two term Republican presidents in our recent history have shared the same illness. That's sad, really.

    And it's a sad statement that they got elected, twice.

    (Or in GWB's case "selected" twice.)

    No one commented on that one, so let me say: :biglaugh:

    There is no participle, dangling or other, in the phrase "I just saw Mr. Bush in Rwanda on TV"; but there is indeed an ambiguity. As Groucho Marx's Captain Spaulding said: "I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know." Odd that that comment also concerned something happening in Africa.

    Not necessarily early-onset Alzheimers, but possibly a delayed effect of heavy drinking earlier in his life, in the judgment of Dr. Joseph M. Price (article).

    Added in editing: I just watched the clip on YouTube, and I didn't see anything wrong with him. Maybe he was just tired from the travel.
