Daniel Tammet is called "Brain Man" in Britain. But unlike most savants, he has no obvious mental disability, and most important to scientists, he can describe his own thought process. He may very well be a scientific Rosetta stone, a key to understanding the brain.

He describes numbers in shapes and colors and says, "pi is one of the most beautiful things in all the world."
He first made headlines at Oxford, when he publicly recited the endless sequence of numbers embodied by the Greek letter "Pi." Pi, the numbers we use to calculate the dimensions of a circle, are usually rounded off to 3.14. but its numbers actually go on to infinity.

Daniel studied the sequence – a thousand numbers to a page.

"And I would sit and I would gorge on them. And I would just absorb hundreds and hundreds at a time," he tells Safer.

It took him several weeks to prepare and then Daniel headed to Oxford, where with number crunchers checking every digit, he opened the floodgates of his extraordinary memory.

Tammet says he was able to recite, in a proper order, 22,514 numbers. It took him over five hours and he did it without a single mistake

Hillary Clinton calls for the Pres to withdraw from Iraq before the end of his presidency.
She doesn't point out that she knows that if a Democrat were to succeed him, he/she would realize that we can not and should not pull out. And if we do the right thing by staying, the future president would then have alot of explaining to do. "Welll...Bush was right to stay, but........"

First Muslim congressman sworn in using Quran...

That's the key, if you want political power in our country, just attack it and we'll bend over for you. Slippery slope, here we come.

Nancy Pelosi: I'VE GOT THE POWER! Higher gas prices,
unless Bush does the right thing and vetos these forthcoming efforts.
Oh, and by the way, Saddam Hussein was executed the muslim way (that or be-heading) by muslims in Iraq, BY Iraqis. Hes was not tried or executed by the United States. Sunnis were looking for anything to complain about and would complain no matter what the outcome. Sounds like the liberal wing of our country. Coincidence?
If Hussein had been comdemned to life in prison, dicatators would all feel that they may have a chance to escape justice and possibly be sprung by people sympathetic to their cause. Democrats would acuse Bush of keeping him alive in order to torture him, and insurgents would be emboldened to try even harder to return him to power. Executing him was a good idea politically.
