    Apparently she's keeping busy.


    Rice to brief Egyptians on peace meeting


    CAIRO (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in Egypt on Tuesday to brief sceptical Egyptian leaders on U.S. plans for a Middle East peace conference in November.

    Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has said the conference must have an outcome assured in advance and his foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, said on Monday it might be necessary to think about postponing it.

    Aboul Gheit said Egypt was unhappy about attempts by some people in Israel to limit the goals of the U.S. initiative.

    "Failure to stand up to such attempts must lead to serious thought about postponing the meeting to a more appropriate time," he said in a statement.

    Rushing into a meeting without agreement on a substantial document could damage the chances for a just settlement in the Middle East, he added.

    Syria and Saudi Arabia have also spoken sceptically about the meeting and analysts say the United States has left much of the preparatory work until the last minute.

    Rice will have talks with Mubarak, Aboul Gheit and Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, U.S. officials said.

    She flew to Cairo from Israel, where she tried to push Israelis and Palestinians toward a joint document addressing the key elements of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

    I thought this thread was about Dubya's righthand man.

    And now we're running low on actual rice? What is this world coming to?

    From the article:

    The rationing steps came as the price of rice has surged worldwide due to the rising costs of energy and fertilizers, droughts in some rice producing countries and higher demand.

    Some countries have taken drastic steps such as limiting or suspending rice exports to ensure they meet domestic demand.

    The price of certain types of rice rose by 50 percent in recent months, causing tension in the poorest parts of the world.

    It's just the world coming to an end. I knew it was coming when Van Halen got back together with Roth.

    If we did without rice in my house, my Filipina wife would withhold sex until she got her damned rice. If we have rice shortages here in the States, I'll be out there rioting in the streets.

    Its not just rice.....it's wheat and grain as well.....my bread supplier just raised their prices on me by about 20%.....thats on top of the surcharge they started for gas for the delivery trucks......some restaurants here in SF have started charging for bread (temporary).....I am seriously considering that my customers have to ask for bread instead of it just being delivered to the table....

    That sucks, big time. On top of that a lot of restaurants aren't hiring the extra help they usually do for the the summer months; this in order to offset the rising food costs...it doesn't take a Phd to see how the trickle down effect is really going to hurt our economy.

    No it don't. Shits starting to hit the fan. My wifes family in the Philippines are paying through the nose for rice which is an absolute stape over there. The government is rationing and stockpiling rice in warehouses with the army guarding them in the event full scale riots flare up. Being that the Philippines isn't the most stable political situation to begin with, Bullwinkles reference to the quote "No country is more than three meals away from a revolution." rings frighteningly true.

    Eh, rice gets a bum rap. It's my favorite side dish.......I eat it all the time.

    Eat whole grain rice and keep the portion size in check. Can't go wrong.
