Condition of Saudi King Fahd Improves

AP -
Saudi King Fahd, whose oil-rich kingdom became a close U.S. ally during his 23-year rule, was reported in stable condition and improving Saturday, a day after he was hospitalized for unspecified medical tests

An official at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh said Fahd's health was "improving, albeit slowly." This after serious decline that was reported from the time the Saudi ruler was admitted.

Doctors late Friday night attempted an emergency procedure which was described by a hospital source as "an application of disinfectants," which was said to be a turning point in the King's condition. While his breathing continues to be describes as "exceedingly light, really, really, really exceeding light," doctors expect to see even greater improvement tomorrow morning, when a shipment of an expected 55 gallon drum of formaldehyde and plasticising agent arrives at the hospital.

"We expect to see a rosy glow return to our beloved King's cheeks, and we will make him available for display soon afterwards."

Glad to see you haven't lost your deft touch...now how about a post on when Zaqawi and Fahd meet in line at the Great Begone...I opined on Belmont that maybe they'd be in a two-fer situation.

Also hoped for their sake that they'd brought along something to read.

And that Arafat didn't try to put in a good word for them. The kiss of death...so to speak.

Happy Memorial Day, y'all.

Also...I'm reaaal mad at that stupid kerfluffle over the soldier that used a religious name for a moniker for his tank.

Michael Moore and Andrew Sullivan object to this arrogant display of bigotry and insensitivity.

Surely you guys can do something delicious with this? I did a post on it, but all I could do was rant...it needs more subtlety.

Close ally, I think not. I just have one question “What is all of OUR oil doing under their sand”. Maybe we should park the 7th fleet on their shores and ask them “Why price now”. Maybe if they started teaching their children to show some consideration for people who do not think their way, maybe we would that less fanatical people coming out of Saudi Arabia.
