and now some common sense

Bush seeks ethanol alliance with Brazil. From yesterday's sheer stupidity to common sense today, it's bizarre the wild swings the Bush administration takes. If they're not careful, sombody will mistake them for a roller coaster.

Anyway, this is long overdue, but better late than never. The world should've followed Brazil's lead and started developing alternative fuels years ago. In fact, it's interesting to note that Brazil owes it's leadership in the ethanol industry to a decision made by the military dictatorship in the 1970s (at least, that's the impression I got from this article). And now it seems even George W. Bush is finally waking up to reality. It's not often you'll find me saying good things about the American government, but I'll give them credit where it's due, and this is definitely a step in the right direction.
