THE SPINE OCTOBER 9, 2006
The North Korean underground nuclear test is barely two hours old. And
already Reuters has reported a rise in the price of oil. Static from
Pyongyang was the cause of the last steep increase in the cost of a barrel,
and the increase went on for many months. The decrease that occurred over
the last four to five weeks was attributed by many Democrats to the wiles
of the president. What monkey-business do they imagine he will do now to
reverse the increase?
