Don't forget the tobacco

In what seems like actual news, if not completely surprising at that, the White House has announced that Lizzie and Phil will undertake a full state visit to the US next year in observance of the 400th anniversary of the oldest English settlement, in Virigina --

Laura and I welcome Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, for a State Visit in May 2007 to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Jamestown Settlement. The United States and the United Kingdom enjoy an extraordinary friendship that is sustained by deep historical and cultural ties and a commitment to defend freedom around the world.

Hopefully the nascent signs of divergence between the US and UK about how to deal with Iraq will be ironed out by then. Wouldn't want things to be awkward.
