Bush Crusades


As tempers flare and people die in other countries over controversial cartoons of Muhammad, about 150 people gathered at the Islamic Center in South Charleston for calm discussion about what the cartoons and the uproar means.

Cheney Aide Gets Testy


She was on the Don Imus radio program the next morning, and promptly got into a heated argument about Mr. Cheney with the host.

"He didn't shoot Harry on purpose, but you're handling this horribly and you're just trying to spin me," Mr. Imus said, adding that he wanted to know why the vice president had a beer at the ranch at lunch, as Mr. Cheney told Fox News.

"What are you, his nanny?" Ms. Matalin shot back.
