Of interesting note in this week's news is the disclosure by the White House that George Bush was treated for Lyme disease a year ago. However, it seems that there was a misunderstanding on the part of the major news outlets that reported the story.
The president was not diagnosed with Lyme disease; rather, he was found to be suffering from a far more common and obvious affliction, Lying disease. It was found as well in his staff and close associates, although it is unclear who gave the disease to whom, or if they were all infected independently of each other.
There is no cure except permanent removal of the carriers from office. If left untreated, it is fatal to U.S. citizens and the world at large.
