Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori has committed perhaps the first case of First Lady-sacking since Henry VIII's quadruple hat trick 450-odd years ago. In a television message broadcast Tuesday night, Fujimori withdrew all of Susana Higuchi's responsibilities and privileges in the ceremonial post. And why not? Over the last 2 weeks, his wife -- a presidential aspirant herself -- has accused various ministers of corruption and her husband of "authoritarianism." His comebacks: "disloyalty" and "blackmail." Oddly, there's no talk of divorce. BTW: Henry VIII had six wives: he divorced two, beheaded two, saw one die and died before causing the last one any trouble.
