A brief comment about the RoachMap

In a write-up about the two-faced game that State is playing, AP writes today [24 May 2003] under the heading, Sharon Faces Challenge Selling 'Road Map':

There is a Latin saying about those who conduct themselves in the manner Powell is behaving. It goes,

Video meliora, proboque, deteriora sequor.

Translated (whereupon the punch is diluted): "I see the better course and approve of it, yet I pursue the worst". The Romans must have known Powell.
