Oh no, after we got out the nice china and everything! President George Bush has sent his regrets that he will not be attending the party for the UN's 60th birthday that we're throwing out here in Sodom-by-the-Bay next week. What's more, his girlfriend Condi isn't coming either! In their place, they're sending some dude we've never heard of, Sichan Siv, the US UNESCO rep.

The president of the UN Association of SF, Nancy Peterson, said, "I am just reading into this that the administration is taking a very dubious stance symbolically toward the importance of the United Nations to the American people." The Bush administration? No way!
