Israel's logo for its 60th anniversary harks back to the good old days an innocent boy in shorts romping with a variation of the Israeli flag unfurling behind him.

Festivities being met with a yawn
President Bush will be coming later in the month for part of the festivities, reportedly with about 800 of his closest friends and bodyguards.
