    Well I was going to put this into some other thread but things have been moving so fast that it is going to be lost and I have been encouraged to give it one of its own. So since this is the first time I've posted like this, I hope I do it all right. I was feeling really frustrated by all the conflicting accounts of how many people were at the anti-war/anti-everything related or not related to Bush protest, that I decided to try to get a closer number based on the picture that came from Reuters of the...

This guy is quickly rising to the top of smarmy Libs. He is a poor Andy Rooney wannabe who accompanies Wolf Blitzer afternoons at CNN. His job description is to add insight and read e-mails answering questions he throws out. Of course, he picks his favorites to read. Everything designed to slime Bush. Not even a hint of objectivity. I just saw him ask, "what will be different with response to...

    Heck, if the government really is going to spend $200 billion to rebuild New Orleans, they might as well rebuild it as the city of tomorrrow complete with kelp farms, electricity generated by tides, public transportation light as a cloud and efficient and almost noiseless, parks that are nice and safe and clean. It could be a proof-of-concept city for all those innovations you see in the middle of "Popular Science" that are always "just around the corner." I draw the line at dog-walking robots and the bubble dome (for now), but you get my drift, I suppose. Well, I...
