Helen Thomas decided to retire today...guess why?
She said "I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.’’
If that's the way she feels, then why make that comment in the first place?
You can tell a lot about a person by how they act when they think no one is looking.
