A letter to The Economist last week:

SIR — Given the British predilection for finding something praiseworthy even in a great mess, I wonder why you are so negative about George Bush and Tony Blair ("Sincere deceivers", July 17th). Unlike you, I was against the Iraq war from the start but even so let's look on the bright side. The war has almost certainly put paid to the notion of pre-emptive strikes (thereby saving us from perhaps even greater mishap in the near or far future); we have learned a lot about how intelligence is (not) gathered and how far we should be prepared to trust it; the Iraqis got rid of Saddam Hussein; and there is a decent chance that the Americans will get rid of Mr Bush.

I dunno, Davis is a pretty common name, and I find that the Web is even rife with Robert Davises. But welcome anyway. :-)
