    The Bush administration clashed with Senate Republicans yesterday over proposals to use oil company profits to beef up heating assistance for low-income households this winter. Energy Secretary Samuel W. Bodman said the administration opposes a proposal by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley urging oil and gas companies to devote a portion of their nearly $100 billion profits in the latest quarter to families who need the money to pay heating bills. "No, sir, I wouldn't support it. It is similar to a tax," Mr. Bodman told reporters after speaking to an industry group. His remarks reflect the views...

    We could be driving powerful, stylish vehicles that get 35-45 mpg -- if we lived in Europe. In the land of $4-$6 per gallon gas, about half the passenger cars in service are diesel-powered -- and not just ancient Mercedes 300Ds chuffing along in the left lane at 45 mph, either. There are sleek and swift high-performance diesel luxury sedans like the BMW 530d -- with 231 horsepower and 369-lbs.-ft. of torque -- capable of 155 mph on the top and 0-60 in 6.8 seconds. Or how about the Land Rover LR3? Its 2.7 liter turbo-diesel V-6 delivers 190 horsepower...

    The election is over, and we will have four years in which to contemplate and analyze the astonishing feat that George W. Bush has just pulled off. He campaigned, convincingly, as a leader who knew that America was at war, and was grimly determined to win. A substantial majority of the American people accepted that assessment, and gave him four more years in which to wage the battle. In the days ahead, we will watch him carefully to see how he discharges that mandate. We will also discuss the political ramifications of the almost total triumph of the Republican Party....
  • Kerry tied to '666'? (Kerry tied to Satan?)

    Was it a biblical warning or just imaginations running wild? ABC News shows Kerry in a sea of sixes during Iowa campaign stop During his presidential campaign in Iowa today, Democrat John Kerry was surrounded by a sea of handheld signs displaying the number six on them. That caught the attention of WND reader Michael of Kaufman, Texas, who happened to record this evening broadcast of ABC's "World News Tonight." "You can imagine my surprise, when they broadcast a video of John Kerry finishing a speech in Iowa to the acclaim of hundreds of people waving signs with the number...
