Do you also do backhoe work?

Literally, yes- I built a CadDigger model 608 in 1998 to do some work at my mother-in-law's, but I have worked around construction machinery off & on throughout my life.

Uzis in Ardmore if Tom had his way (mega-barf alert)
Houston Comical ^ | 3/18 | the vile Cragg Hines
Everything on their editorial page is hard left, but it also extends blatantly into their news coverage without shame or guilt. A few months ago they accidentally posted an internal memo on their website from one of the chiefs of the editorial staff. It gave lengthy and detailed directions to writers on slanting both editorial and news coverage in favor of an upcoming referendum. Included in the memo were the details on conducting a smear campaign against Tom DeLay. It appeared online for less than an hour, but fortunately got copied before they took it down.

CNN 'backpedals' on gun story -Admits it misled viewers in comparing different types of weapons
Source: World Net Daily
URL Source: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp? ARTICLE_ID=32677
Published: May 20, 2003
There is nothing new about this. Back when CNN was lying about the "Operation Tailwind" thing we caught them rigging their own gun control polls. They would continue to run polls asking loaded questions to try and get a majority calling for more gun laws,and they had to keep taking the polls down for "technical reasons" when they didn't get the numbers they wanted. They finally resorted to putting one poll back up after "fixing the software glitch",and the buttons for "yes" and "no" were reversed. A "no" vote was logged as a "yes" vote.

CNN rapped over gun segment
The Washington Times ^ | 5/19/2003 | Robert Stacy McCain
CNN got busted. They were exposed finally as the liberal liars they are. One of the "call ins" said he doesn't have a gun, won't own one, isn't a member of the NRA but he's making sure all of his friends are watching this controvery unfold. It's a major disaster for CNN and in my opinion, much worse than a writer not knowing which way a house points to a field such as what was written in the New York Times.

I really had planned it as a short-lived "window on what 2 weeks of RKBA stories looks like." Kind of a sampler of news. But I see it could take on a life of its own easily enough.
