This is hilarious: Swift-Footed W. by Nicholas D. Kristof, Editorials/Op-Ed from today (10/22/2003)’s NYT.
In case “The Iliad” isn’t lying around the Oval Office, let me recap for our warriors in Washington. Achilles is both the mightiest warrior and a petulant, self-righteous, arrogant figure. A unilateralist, he refuses to consult with allies; he dismisses intelligence about his own vulnerability; he never reads the newspapers.
It is a funny little article, not very long either. So read it and enjoy!
