Kofi's retirement

Kofi says he's been exonerated. A U.S. Senator says otherwise. In this instance, although I'm frequently skeptical about politicians' credibility, I go with the Senator. I don't myself think the U.N. should be much more than a debating society. As such, it could be a useful institution, if it doesn't get too uppity. In my opinion. But I recognize that there are reasonable people who think that the U.N. should be more than a place for debate. For them, this situation must be horrible. The longer it lasts with Kofi still in office, (Hell, no, I won't go.) the greater the damage to the institution altogether.

Kofi may survive the U.N. Who thinks that would be a good thing?
