In its latest bid to frighten the planet into a constant state of shock and awe, our government is accelerating its own leading-edge weapons-of-mass-destruction program: President Bush's allies on the Senate Armed Services Committee have approved ending a decade-old ban on developing atomic battlefield weapons and endorsed moving ahead with creating a nuclear "bunker-buster" bomb. They also rubber-stamped the Administration's request for funds to prepare for a quick resumption of nuclear weapons testing.

Hi, Lisa and Zelda--

As an intern for one of the House Democrats who walked out the other day, I just wanted to say thanks for the links. I am proud of my State Representative. It is hard being a Democrat in Texas, and it's good to know that we have your support. Take care!

The only thing worse than being a Democrat in Texas is being a Democrat in Florida. We feel your pain. We are proud of you and Texas Democrats.
