Don't see it that way. India pops one into Pakistan. China fearing their
next pops one into India, India retaliates as does Pakistan, Iran being
what they are pops one into Pakistan, and India. Isreal being paranoid pops
a few in every direction. At the same time the stock market hits 10K and
melts down. Japan now knowing they are doomed from the drifting radiation
cloud and American stock market sends one into Australia figuring they can
always use the land. Clinton gets three more interns into the White House
for the long nights ahead. McNealy knowing this is his best chance
convinces an Air Force buddy to drop one on Redmond. Job's knowing
Microsoft is done for raises the price of a new Mac back to 1989 levels.
The Beastie boys cancel their Tibet concert since there is no more Tibet.
Pamela Anderson Lee moves back in with Tommy, and Tracy Lords facing her
30th birthday announces her return to porn. Pretty simple if you ask me.

But who is wearing the blue turban?
