    NEW YORK - Rudy Giuliani has focused on November 2008 — and Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton — from the outset of his presidential bid with a strategy as uncertain as it is necessary. "I'm not running against my Republican opponents. I'm running against the Democrats," Giuliani insists as he brushes aside reality: before going toe-to-toe with that party's nominee, he must win the GOP nod. It's a tall — though not impossible — order. The former New York mayor with the messy personal life and moderate-to-liberal positions on social issues is an unorthodox choice given that conservative voters usually...

    I think that it has been well established that "conservatives" or whatever it is they call themselves these days (e.g., storm troopers) in matters concerning politics value little more than the state's power in which they imagine themselves to participate and the supposed glory that war and domestic national securitism brings to them. Now strictly speaking this is a delusion, because their only access to power lies in the accidental agreement of their opinions with those of the managers of the state. This access will evaporate as soon as the state does something that displeases our conservatives. It is always...

    Chief Warrant Officer Larry A. Framness was trying to play a joke on a fellow U.S. Marine when he threw a grenade at him while both were in Kuwait on war duty, Framness' attorney said yesterday at a military hearing. Framness, 36, is charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, dereliction of duty, adultery and other charges. Prosecutors say Framness and his mistress, Wendy M. Glass, plotted to kill her husband, Chief Warrant Officer James H. Glass, so the two lovers could cash in a $350,000 life insurance policy. Although the case involves personnel based at Marine Corps Air...
