i think we need to revise the old news saying

'if it bleeds, it leads, but if it's blonde , ratings wand'

the natalee holloway coverage is a new low in cable news, every time i think it can't go lower, it does

sadly it seems the ratings correspond inversely

:(

Well, youre correct of course. I think it starts at the envirowhackos level though. these people have too much influence just as the political correct group does. Time our ELECTED politicians start listening to the PEOPLE rather then the special interest groups. Thats one of the reasons I am ALL FOR term limitations. jdn

Term limits haven't accomplished diddley-squat in California. Gerrymandering insures that the powers-that-be in both parties choose the winners before a race has even started.

special interest groups aarp, oil industry, pharma industry, unions, hold big time dollars over these congressmen. i believe even if we had term limits the next person running would cave into the lobby group to get the money to run.

I figure this got to break soon, people running air conditioning are seeing $400. mo bills, i expect propane will be over $2. a gallon to heat your home. natural gas perhaps in the same area. The average middle income worker this winter is going to feel a squeeze on heating homes, and transportation. someone will start yelling soon.

Meanwhile greenspan is trying to cool off the economy?

evolution... i think the big bang is coming in Jan or feb. gg

Really? I've been told that community colleges in California avoid hiring full-time teachers in order to avoid paying benefits and that this has been going on for quite some time.

No doubt. I just refilled my tank and it was $1.799/gallon before the good customer discount.

NJ quite different i guess. He teaches a couple of classes, and eats, sleeps and drinks the rest of the time. And he has a PhD which he got thru the NJ affirmative action program for unrepentent alcoholics. But he is a fun guy and i still like him. He has no idea that he is taking advantage of the system.
