Independent & Kerry?

I was letting my mind wander again after reading that election monitor article (see below) in this morning's Irish Independent. I was wondering if those 500 Florida votes had gone the other way in 2000 if Global Exchange would be seeking monitors?

Then I started wondering how that article ended up in the Irish Independent. And, then I just wondered (and no more than that, I assure you) how well Tony O'Reilly knows Theresa Heinz Kerry. After all, he was the CEO at Heinz for nearly 20 years and took over as Chairman after the death of Henry Heinz in 1987.

Of course, I've wondered about Tony O'Reilly and his newspapers before.
