  10. Double Standard Watch: Bennett vs. Rangel – major news outlets silent on Rangel’s hate speech

    Incidentally, Rangel’s remarks cannot be written off as the rantings of one lone nut – the DNC refused to condemn his remarks. Race-baiting bile is now mainstream in the Democratic party, and non-news in America’s largest newspapers.

  11. More On D.C.’s Biohazard Detection

    A reader commented on “D.C. Biohazard Sensors Triggered:” I know of at least 2 dozen people who were at the protest who are now sick with respiratory illnesses. In fact- I haven’t talked to a person yet who was there

  15. Cuba After Castro

    Via the AP: U.S. Sees Democracy for Post-Castro Cuba

    Lend Me Your Ears and I’ll Sing You a Song…

    Got back from York a few hours ago, much emptier of pocket but two gallons fuller of beer. So it goes. Every time we go for a night in York it comes as a relief to find that my body, quickly abandoning that heady condition known as ‘youth’, can still
