The UN General Assembly opens its 61st session today: Iran’s nuclear program and genocide in Sudan, are on the front burner. And President Bush and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will address the general assembly today though they won’t meet.

And therefore the Hall of Fame? Let us know at Joe.
