DeLay Slams Supreme Court Justice and the Internet 

What's with the Internet bashing? Does this mean DeLay gives no credit to the 'find work' done by the National Review online, Drudge, or the Swift Boat Deceptors on their web sites? Are we supposed to take this to mean that Delay's own web site isn't credible?

This makes me wonder where DeLay does research. Should I assume that Tom Delay's primary source of information is lobbyists?

DeLay Slams Supreme Court Justice - Yahoo! News: "'Absolutely. We've got Justice Kennedy writing decisions based upon international law, not the Constitution of the United States? That's just outrageous,' DeLay told Fox News Radio. 'And not only that, but he said in session that he does his own research on the Internet? That is just incredibly outrageous.'"

Accountability in this White House? Forget about it. 

Bush administration eliminating 19-year-old international terrorism report

Why would the administration that declared War on Terror has decided to stop publishing “Patterns on Global Terrorism,” and annual report published since 1985 reporting terrorist attacks? Apparently, the attacks have reached all time highs over the past couple years.

If you don’t like the score, is the solution to stop keeping it?

What a strange move coming from an administration that promised to return accountability to the White House.

Blair Sorvari Defies tact and logic 

A writer stated in Sunday's Star Tribune that light rail has killed one person while no murders have been conducted by permit carrying handgun owners since the passage of conceal and carry.

The score: 1-0

Let it be stated that light rail has killed more people in Minnesota than permit-carrying gun owners.

Blair Sorvari, Champlin.

Using the unfortunate death of an elderly driver to support carrying concealed weapons defies tact and logic.

If the comparision is going to be made, at least include some stats on the lives saved from both. My estimate is 2.6 lives/year are saved by light rail due to the decrease in automobile accident deaths among new transit riders.

I couldn't find comparable stats on conceal & carry lives saved. Do they exist?
