  • FOX News postures for war concerning Iran. Nothing like "Fair and Balanced" reporting.

  • Between 1987 and 2002, obesity-related private health spending has soared, from $3.6 billion to $36.5 billion. This is and will continue to be a HUGE problem. Remember, insurance companies eventually began to ask people if they were smokers....

  • With Rehnquist reportedly due to retire very soon, the LA Times reports that while GW could choose from among several judges which could win confirmation very easily (implying they're not overly partisan), he will likely choose to confront the Senate, thereby selecting a divisive, controversial candidate. In other words, in light of the Dems caving and agreeing to that pathetic filibuster deal (recall: they have the right to filibuster, as long as they don't use it), their reward will be a fight in earnest provoked by Bush. Let's see what kind of spine the Dems have now -- they brought it on themselves.

  • So Rove now officially has a role in policy making. Is this news to anyone? The Downing Street Memos are not new news, and yet this is? With his new title of "deputy chief of staff," only now does Rove have a hand in policy -- hah! Yeah, up till now Karl has been a quiet operator with little influence.... Next to Cheney, Rove is actually running this country!
