Democratic Discourse? 

It's been a rough couple of days for Europe's leaders. First, Germany's Gerhard Schroeder got slapped in the face yesterday. No one seems to know what the slapper's motive was.

Then, today, Tony Blair had a "harmless purple powder" thrown at him by members of "Fathers 4 Justice", a fathers'-rights group apparently named by Prince.

Is there a connection between these two attacks? I'll leave it to you to decide, but I should point out that Schroeder and Blair are scheduled to meet tomorrow. Hopefully they'll discuss how tough it is to find good security staff these days.
