who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Robin ram raids village on day two. Thanks to Barry White for the update on the driving skills of Robin Cleveland, member of the Wolfowitz praetorian guard. Friends in the Congo tell us she doesn't do much better in a helicopter...

Friends of worldbankpresident with deep roots in the Democratic Republic of Congo are telling us that MONUC (the UN mission in the DRC) helicopter pilots cite a recent incident with Cleveland to explain why their whirlybirds are less than welcome in certain locales.

Swooping in to bestow the Bank's magnanimity upon the people's of one poor community, the helicopter that Cleveland was travelling in blew the roofs off of all the houses in the village.

No word on who paid the bill on this one.

(More information? Contacts in the DRC who can verify? contact@worldbankpresident.org)
