I Love German Food

Check out this juxtaposition in a story about Blair’s trip to meet with other European leaders:
Putin, who often miscues publicly by using exotic language, reacted sharply when a reporter linked human rights abuses and corruption in Africa with the situation in Russia.

"We know that in some African countries there was a practice of eating political opponents. We not have such a tradition or culture and I think a comparison between Africa and Russia is not quite fair," he said.

Blair was to dine with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder later on Monday in Berlin.
Really? Who’s on the menu?

Note to the author: perhaps “meet” would have been better than “dine” in this particular instance.
