Welcome to Vienna


President Bush arrived in Vienna yesterday night. It caught the Viennese by surprise. (Hey! It's the first time we've been noticed by the Americans in 27 years!)

As Bush was driven to his hotel, curious onlookers, most of whom remained motionless and expressionless, gathered along Vienna's streets. One group struggled unsuccessfully to unfurl a ''Go Home'' banner from a restaurant balcony in time for it to be seen by occupants of the speeding motorcade. (More)

Somehow it seems disturbingly appropriate that a program of talks that will cover the situation in Iraq is taking place in Central Europe's former Imperial capital.
