|a customer shared this with me this morning.
During his morning briefing of the President, Donald Rumsfeld informed
Bush that 3 Brazilian soldiers had been killed in a fierce gun battle
"OH MY GOD!", the President exclaimed. "This is tragic!" and slumped
forward with his head in his hands. His staff sat there, nervously
watching, stunned at this display of emotion given his usual brave face
when even much larger numbers of casualties had been reported. Finally
the President looked up with tears in his eyes and asked...
"How many more than a million is a brazillion?"
