Gorby wants to drink recycled sewage

Another bit of news from our friends Down Under. For those of you on the left, the term "Down Under" refers to Australia, not "beneath Bill Clinton's office desk." Anywho, observe:
THE former most powerful man in the world is so committed to the environment he would drink recycled sewage. (Exactly WHEN was Gorby the most powerful man in the world? As far as I can remember, he was always Reagan's bitch! - Ed.)

Former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev said yesterday the world's atmosphere and waterways were so polluted that an environmental crisis clock would be showing "five minutes to midnight".

When told that the Queensland city of Toowoomba was holding a referendum next week on whether to recycle sewage water for drinking, Mr Gorbachev drew on it as an example of acting locally but thinking globally.

While the vote was a matter for the people of Toowoomba, Mr Gorbachev - in Brisbane for Earth Dialogues Brisbane 2006 - said he would have no problem drinking recycled water.
Drink up, comrade. Call me a victim of that "winner's complex" thingie that Gorby diagnosed America with, but I think I'd rather go for a ride with Ted Kennedrunk than drink sewage. After all, I do know how to swim, so I might have a fighting chance with ol' TK behind the wheel.
