    Understanding interviews with John Howard

    Reading an interview in Time Magazine (which I have been unable to find on the web) with Australian P. M. John Howard, I was reminded of this short dialogue in "Closer", where Dan talks about obituaries:
    DAN: "He was a convivial fellow," meaning he was an alcoholic.
    DAN: "He valued his privacy," gay.
    DAN: "He enjoyed his privacy," raging queer.

    Questioned about President Bush, John Howard says (I'll insert my translation in italics):
    Oh, he's a good bloke He's just plain dumb He's very focused as we say in Spain, when a dummy takes a path, the path ends, the dummy follows Tough he's a bully and single minded, very much so he's a blockhead unable to change opinion if it hits him in the face. And possessed of great personal warmth he pats in the back and smiles without a good reason. His people skills are very good he has no conversation whatsoever so tells jokes.
