Some residents who have complained have children serving in Iraq, said Bob Kearns, president of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association
Lisa Jensen said she wasn't thinking of the war when she hung the wreath. She said, "Peace is way bigger than not being at war. This is a spiritual thing."
Jensen, a past association president, calculates the fines will cost her about $1,000, and doubts they will be able to make her pay. But she said she's not going to take it down until after Christmas.

Texas is Toxic
Among all states, Texas is by far the No. 1 emitter of greenhouse gas pollution. But Texas has no plan to stop it, slow it down or deal with the consequences. We don't even have an official state inventory of what's at risk. Other states are trying to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, but Texas is poised to build 19 coal-fired power plants that will emit an additional 110 million tons of greenhouse gas pollution a year

Subject: Bush hand holding
You showed the picture of Bush holding the hand of the Saudi prince/king (whatever he is). Please tell my why the fundies don't accuse him of being gay. They accused poor Sponge Bob of being gay for holding hands with his friend. Just asking.
Keep of the good work.
What I find disturbing about Bush's hand holding is that he is the only world leader photographed doing that. Actually what is more disturbing is wondering what else Bush is holding.
Sponge Bob is gay?

Our Banished VEEP (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
He’ll be banished from office, VEEP Dick;
Not his job, but his real estate pick.
He had primo House space,
But eviction he’ll face,
Cause the Democrats won. What a kick!
