It’s too late the damage is done. The SS Obozo has taken another torpedo hit which has ripped open the waterline. She is down by the head by 10 degrees and foundering fast.

I guess ‘Ground zero mosque’ is too divisive and that we should be more civil. Barf.

That means that the left is again defining the discourse. So you use the terms that you want and that are effective.

It is just to bad that there are alternate means of distributing information, nowadays.

As a former editor there, I’d say that’s a reasonable requirement. It should be called “Cordoba House”, with a full history of the name as the capital of the region of Spain conquered by Muslims and held from 711 until 1492.

Does anyone other than a VERY casual reader expect anything else out of the AP? These b@stards don’t even make any pretense about story manipulation and outright lying regarding stories they cover.
