    Editor, Times-Dispatch: [Snip] Michael Moore's selective use of half-truths and outright lies is a crockumentary. ("A half-truth is a whole lie," according to a Yiddish proverb.) In Fraudandhype 9/11, the truth was edited out. What is true is that Michael Moore blamed America for being attacked, lamented the fact that more Republicans weren't killed in the attack, has called Americans "stupid," stated that the more American troops killed, the better, and has likened the Iraqi terrorists to the Minutemen.

We can spot the stupid ones because they submit them in a stack." [snip]...

    Harvey Derrick Glanton's statement that he thought he was killing a chicken when he crushed Daniel Bruce Balbaugh's skull was too much for Balbaugh's family.

Gill Jr. in Chesterfield County Circuit Court just after Gill had found Glanton not guilty by reason of insanity. Glanton, 45, was working in Atlanta as a forklift operator when he began to unravel, according to testimony. He had lost an eye...

    John Burton Wade, 19, will complete his freshman year at Mary Washington College on April 30. Then he'll spend what would have been his sophomore, junior and senior years in prison.

They admitted to a five-month campaign of vandalism meant to protest the damage that society is causing to the natural environment. They were driven by what the three high-schoolers viewed, with fierce teenage passion, as the adult public's frustrating refusal...

    My kid has a problem. He's a very bright 12 year old conservative surrounded by a sea of liberals (teachers & classmates). It gets pretty old being on the defensive every day. I can help him with coping skills (no, really, I can!), but it would be nice if I could find him a "Conservative Kids" Forum. (He keeps asking when he can join free republic - I give him the same answer as when he asks about sex - "when you're forty-two.") Seriously, if anyone knows of any kid-friendly sites or organizations where he can discourse with other conservative-minded...

Counter-demonstrators who support the U.S. effort in Iraq, meanwhile, say they are the ones in the majority. They cite polls showing about 70 percent of the country backing the war effort. "We're starting to see quite a bit of it on the streets," Scott Swett, chairman of the Free Republic Network, told Fox News. "People are interested in taking a stand and having their voices heard. Swett's group helps promote...

(As a medical deduction, Chesty would have only been allowed to write off the operation if her costs exceeded a whopping 7.5 percent of her income. Business write-offs...
