Don't you just love it!

LGF provides some multilateral amusement - UN springs into action. From the Reuters article:
The 191-member U.N. General Assembly approved a nuclear terrorism treaty on Wednesday that would oblige governments to punish those who illegally possess atomic devices or radioactive materials.
Ya think?
The document, after seven years of negotiation, is the 13th anti-terrorism convention and the first completed since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
Dang, they're like greased lightning!
The pact will be open for signature on Sept. 14 in New York, during a high-level summit ...
I guess it takes time to organize a fancy shindig with all the requisite expense account padding.

You just can't make this stuff up.
