Bill Clinton in Ireland, Doing Well

Mr. Clinton is in Ireland, and will give a speech to a suicide prevention group. Sounds good, but he is being handsomely paid for his 40 minutes. And some people over there think that's very wrong.

I've heard of other former presidents ( Ford and Reagan among them ) raking in big fees from business groups. But never have I heard of a president taking such a sum of money from such a good cause. Jimmy Carter simply would never do this.

The speech will dissapear from memory quickly, but the Irish will remember this payment for a long time. Unless Clinton has the decency to return the 125,000 pieces of silver
