Did You Know Colin Powell and Dick Armitage Went to Syria?
QUESTION: Many strategists say that
we'll never get to the bottom of this crisis unless the U.S. engages directly
with Syria and Iran.
Why not talk to them directly about this and have a back-and-forth conversation?
BUSH: Yes, that's an interesting question. I have been reading about that, that people have been posing that question.
We have been in touch with Syria. Colin Powell sent a message to Syria in person. Dick Armitage traveled to Syria. Bill Burns traveled to Syria. We've got a consulate office in Syria.

The Same After All These Years
Florida, in all likelihood, will never be able to
offer the nation a spectacle quite like the loopy splendor of the 2000
But be warned: It appears those plucky little rascals in the Republican Party are trying their darnedest to re-create some of the thrills, chills and I-think-I'm-gonna-be-ills of yesteryear in this fall's U.S. Senate campaign.

Lieberman confronts anti-war criticism AP
In the last year, 15 states have enacted laws that expand the right of self-defense, allowing crime victims to use deadly force in situations that might formerly have subjected them to prosecution for murder...the police in Clearwater, Fla., did not arrest a man who shot a neighbor in early June after a shouting match over putting out garbage...
They no longer need to prove that they feared for
their safety, only that the person they killed had intruded unlawfully and
forcefully. The law also extends this principle to vehicles.
The week before the elections, why don't we see who raised the most money, declare him/her the winner and deposit all the campaign funds in the treasury. Nothing would change except we'd help the budget instead of the publicists.-- Zing!

The Allegheny County district attorney has filed a 20-count complaint against state Rep. Jeffrey E. Habay, R-Shaler, charging him, among others things, with falsely claiming to police that a political opponent had sent him an envelope containing suspicious white powder.
The political harassment charges, filed yesterday, outline a broad pattern of vindictive acts by the veteran lawmaker aimed at opponents who had questioned his official spending.
