Tight around the neck

Winnograd report fallout is at fever pitch and the people want Olmert's neck. If Olmert's popularity could get any lower it would be subterranean. The tsunami of demands for him to resign is obviously having a physical effect on him too. All eyes are now on the big demo planned for Thurs night in Rabin Square. I hope they don't spoil it by letting politicians (and especially Bibi) demand Olmert and Peretz' heads.
The best outcome possible is probably Olmert's replacement by Tsipi or even Shimon. That would keep Labour (without Peretz at its head) on board and we might be spared new elections. Anything but Bibi. But will they have the balls to do it? Sources close to Livni deny that she is planning a putsch http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3394533,00.html
I hope they're wrong.
On a more serious note, a new song has appeared on the Mid Life Crisis page on myspace
It's called Ecstasy and features New York flautist, Itai 'the Shark' Kriss www.itai.kriss.com
