提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

HW

He was president Bush's third press secretery, brought in to revitalize second term administration increasingly unpopular on off message. Tony Snow brought to the job credentials  of a journerlist and polish of a TV star. "Tony already knows most of you and he's agreed to take the job anyway. And I am really glad he did". And former conservative pounded tumor might be refreshing off about with C cancer. "No, no. Just having gone through this last year -- and I said this to Chris Wallace -- was the best thing that ever happened to me." A natural wordsmith,Snow defended Bush policies with gusto, and clearly relished the cut-and-thrust of his daily meetings with reporters. "The Palestinians are not being bankrupted,Helen. what's happening, as you know, was that there is --the Hamas is a terrorist organization. We do not give money to terroist organizations." Snow was young editorial writers when he first came to the White House to write speeches for Bush's father. But most Americans got to know him through TV as a genial but acerbic host of Fox News Sunday. At the White House podium , Snow was unflinching Bush booster. But way from it, he was a devout family man who cut loose playing flute with a rock band.
And his time of podium was fleeting. Ten months after starting, his cancer was back. "In re- e~ recent series of CAT scans and PET scans and MRIs we have found a small growth in my lower abdomen Blood tests are negative. PET scans are negative, But out of an aggressive sense of caution,I'm gonna go to surgery on Monday ,and have it removed. "He's in tears, reportors stuned."And I'll miss you each and every day, especially when I'm sore and filled up with drugs.

Snow eventually handed the job to his deputy, Dana Perino, but not before telling a banquet of White House correspondents--Washington's not the snake pit it's cracked up to be."It's a small town where we are quite often bound together by extraordinary experiences, and the unique honor of sitting at a seat of government of a nation that not only remakes history but also defines what it means to be a good country."Looking out at the great and the good that evening, he offered this advice: If you see someone in need, do some good and pass it on.

Mark Smith, the Associated Press, the White House.

On the way...... 重庆崽儿,永不言弃!
