Just some thoughts on what I see on The Drudge Report at the moment:
"MCCAIN JOKES ABOUT SUICIDE IF DEMS WIN SENATE" -- If only he was serious.
"Bush warns against selling nuclear arms..." -- The warning was to North Korea. What about those who sell to them?
"FBI WANTS INTERNET PROVIDERS TO KEEP RECORD OF USER'S ACTIVITIES..."
"Iran cuts Internet speeds to homes, cafes..." -- Any real surprise? Politically, they can't just cut it off net access all at once, but they can frustrate people by cutting speeds. And who is the oppressor? I would almost classify slow internet as torture.
"For First Time, Airport Workers Nationwide To Face Intense Security Screening..." -- For FIRST TIME? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot??? Five years after 9/11 and this is the first time? Assinine.
"Calif. city may bar illegal immigrants from renting..." -- Yay! Another one!! Three cheers for Escondido, California! I wish Selma would do the same. With a three of our town council members being rental property owners, I doubt it would ever happen here. Remember that in a year when the municipal election comes around again. I don't own any rental houses or apartments, by the way. Just my own. If I did, my policy would be simply "no Green Card, no rental. No English, no rental."
"N Korea informs China of plan to conduct 3 more nuke tests..." -- China has it right about wanting separation from North Korea and has built a wall on their common border. I hope that China comes down on Korea harshly over all of this. I wish we had the guts that China does and would build a wall on our border with Mexico...and fast.
Other comments: If you look at the N&O web site, you will see nothing about the scandals in the NC Legislature with Jim Black, nothing for follow up on stories about mismanagement of taxpayer money and state employee time by the D.O.T., and nothing about the projected $1 billion dollar budget shortfall after a budget surplus of over $2 billion last year that was frivilously spent. I wish they would KEEP this stuff on the front page of their web site. In all fairness, there is a full section of stories about Jim Black and Kevin Geddings. You just have to hunt for it.
