Great jobs of our time.

Exciting news from the UN:

"The Trusteeship Council held a brief organizational meeting this afternoon to elect Jean-Pierre Lacroix of France as its President and Karen Pierce of the United Kingdom as its Vice-President.

Both candidates were elected by acclamation after being nominated on the basis of consultations among Council members. Following the election, incoming President Lacroix thanked Council members for the trust (rimshot...) they had placed in him. Outgoing President and new Vice-President Pierce congratulated Mr. Lacroix in the course of conducting the meeting".

One small problem - "The Council suspended operations when the last United Nations Trust Territory, Palau, attained independence in 1994".

However, "The Council’s future role is under consideration as part of the broader reform of the United Nations and the Security Council".

And to think that there are people who do not think much of the governance of the UN.


I think I'd make a really good head of the Warsaw Pact.
