Arik, skip the schmaltz

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon of Israel who had a minor stroke earlier this week needs to go on a diet: From the NY Times:

JERUSALEM (AP) -- The day before his minor stroke, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon enjoyed a typical meal with family and friends. The menu included hamburgers, steak in chimichurri sauce, lamb chops, shish kebab and salads.

For dessert, Sharon had chocolate cake -- and then some more cake, the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv reported.
President Bush even called Sharon on Tuesday and urged him to ''be careful about food, start exercising and cut back on work hours,'' according to a government statement.

''Be careful, my friend,'' said Bush, a former runner who frequently goes mountain biking.

Remember the Bush-haters who complained about his workout regimen? [when 'Mother' Sheehan was doing her camp out in Texas this summer]
