Old Friends

Latest from the Lockerbie prisoner release scandal is that British Justice Secretary Jack Straw brokered the "oil for prisoners" exchange with Libya. Makes sense. Downing Street handles UK foreign policy and used Scotland to further its own ends. Not exactly the first time that's happened. As I commented to a friend, no matter how Mother Scotland conducts herself, she always get the dirty end of the stick; it's a cosmic imperative.
