Retreat of the Damned?

Is there actually positive change in the wind or something? The likely exit of Wolfowitz from the World Bank the same week as the death of Jerry Falwell might sound like just too many nasty vultures leaving to be true. But as with Falwell's demise, it's not as if it's a signpost of positive change. Just that one jerk died and another lost his job. If there were any hope it would be of Wolfowitz leaving when there was a new regime in the White House. It's hard to believe that the World Bank will ever be anything than what it has been for 60+ years, a cash source for perpetuating and extending poverty, supporting corrupt regimes, a plum political appointment.
