In his interview with Kerry O'Brien, aired on the 7.30 Report last night, former World Bank President and Middle East envoy James Wolfensohn mentioned, in passing, Ariel Sharon. It occurred to me suddenly that I had thought little about Sharon since he passed suddenly from the political scene in 2006 after suffering a stroke. So I looked him up, and it seems Sharon has been in a vegitative state for two years with few cognitive abilities, and that MKs are lobbying for Sharon's son to be pardoned from his jail sentence for lying under oath so that he can be close to his father.
