Vacation Rice

Just hit me about the item from Democracy Now! today, we have Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts from Sunday that we can pair it with:
"Top Officials Head to Region; Rice Ends Vacation"
Several top officials were sent to the devastated area over the weekend including Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Gen. Richard Myers, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. President Bush is returning to the region today. Rice had been on vacationing in New York up until Thursday. The Daily News reported she saw the Monty Python play Spamalot on Broadway, took tennis lessons with Monica Seles and went shoe shopping on Fifth Avenue. The shopping experience didn’t go quite as planned -- a fellow shopper shouted at her "How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are dying and homeless!" That shopper was then removed from the store. Vice President Dick Cheney has also ended his vacation. He had stayed in Wyoming all of last week.
