John Gorenfeld at Alternet reports that the president’s kid brother Neil has been traveling through Asia in the company of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, self-proclaimed messiah and sole proprietor of the loyal Republican Washington Times, promoting (ready for this?) a $200 billion “Peace King Tunnel”–51 underwater miles joining Alaska to Russia
The tunnel is, according to Moon’s spokespeople, “God’s fervent desire.”
It would be a very impressive achievement, and one with no complicating factors, like benefit to either nation.
Cheaper than a Mars mission, though.
