"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

What about prisoners in Afghanistan?

Who says, "Support Our troops, Impeach Rumsfeld"? Could be the troops, depending on who you ask.

I've complained before about candidates who are out campaigning when they should be voting in Congress.

I don't agree with everything Joyce Marcel says here but there are things worth considering.

I may not agree, I may not want to agree, I may want to be living in a different kind of world, but it took courage to say torture might be necessary, especially in the current climate.

Republican lawmakers aren't loving the White House or it's pet causes these days.

Tit-for-tat warfare continues around the globe.

Using a PR firm to handle democracy advertisements in Iraq is problematic, at best. If you're telling the truth to a population accustomed to hearing rhetoric that doesn't match reality, using the language of advertising, an industry expert at offering rhetoric that doesn't match reality might not be your wisest move.

A major political upset in India will mean…what for their simmering war with Pakistan?

Another harsh evaluation of ChoicePoint.

But an insider at ChoicePoint says the chairman told him about a longer-term plan. “Derek [Smith] said that it is his hope to build a database of DNA samples from every person in the United States,” from birth to death and beyond linked to all other data on a person. The plan, said the source, is for now kept under wraps because Smith expects “resistance” from the public.

There's also a plausible discussion of the use of such "intelligence" in overthrowing governments.

I think the scoffing and scorn directed at the blatant (and illusionary) display of "compassion" on the Bush re-election website is quite justified.

Have you read, Bush's Secret War Chest?

Reproductive Rights in a new generation…and with a growing equality of voices from both genders.

Is Journalism deciding it's time for Journalism to get back to Journalism?

Baseball's history expanded.

Indian Politics: The defeat of the BJP by Indian Congress is the best political news I've seen since.... I can't remember when.

The defeat of the incumbents was more decisive than certainly I expected.
