During another solemn day in Britain, we have more news. But first, please note may editorial cartoon on the header. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Now on to business.

During a recent visit to Sudan, the site of a huge genocide, Condoleeza Rice recieved a rather cold welcome.

NARAL

If they don’t like him, I like him. So does Hugh.

Biography goes on…

Bush is “Deeply impressed…he has a ‘good heart.’”

Justice is speaking:
