Does Ice Melt in August?

The Independent
"Senators John McCain, a Republican, and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic senator for New York, were confronted by melting permafrost and shrinking glaciers and heard from native Inuit that rising sea levels were altering their lives."
Well why not? Go see if the ice is melting in the Northern Hemisphere in August, and ask the natives how they are getting along. What better way to confirm junk science than to have more junk science. Anyone knows that any pedestrian hit by a car will be improved if the next car hits him, too.

Motto of the day: "Throttle the child within."

Editors Ponder How to Present a Broad Picture of Iraq - New York Times: "'Did you know that 47 countries have re-established their embassies in Iraq?' the anonymous polemic asks, in part. 'Did you know that 3,100 schools have been renovated?'
'Of course we didn't know!' the message concludes. 'Our media doesn't tell us!'"

We have known this, but we didn't know what we didn't know. The question is this, are the AP reporters going to get off their hind ends and go out and get the news instead of sitting around reporting the death figures?
The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "Appearing on CBS' 'Face the Nation' yesterday, the fiery former Vermont governor said, 'It looks like today, and this could change, as of today it looks like women will be worse off in Iraq than they were when Saddam Hussein was president of Iraq.' "
I think that the U.S. Marine Corps should bring the head of the fallen bust of Saddam to America and install in on a pedestal in front of the Democratic National Committee. They will be more comfortable with Saddam that past Democratic heroes like FDR, Truman, and Jefferson. Truman would have clapped this whole modern bunch in jail and lost the key.
