DURST: Mideast Peace Conference
What if they gave a peace conference and nobody came? Or what if they all came but acted like zombies from the fourth dimension under the influence of the planet Thorazine? Or what if they came and acted like zombies from the fourth dimension under the influence of the planet Thorazine but smiled real nice for the cameras and then clammed up tighter than an incarcerated policeman's butthole on his first day of general population?There was a Mideast peace summit at the White House, but it was the quietest peace summit ever. Nobody said nothing, except Clinton, of course, but shutting him up is like trying to cap a gushing hydrant with a mayonnaise jar lid. Either the peace summit was supposed to be subtitled and the translator fell asleep or it was presented as a mime version of a peace conference. In which case, it was immensely successful. All the pomp with none of that sticky circumstance. Kind of like a Mideast slumber party. Or maybe the boys just decided to use the ugly situation in Israel as an excuse to ditch the ladies and get together for a few beers and some cards. What you want to bet Arafat suspects Netanyahu is playing with a marked deck? And vica versa.Will Durst doesn't.
