    Fifty years ago Wednesday the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and shared his dream with the world. As we pause to remember that iconic moment in our nation’s history, we should reflect on all the progress our country has made since the slain civil rights leader spoke from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. At the same time we cannot and must not lose sight of the fact that there remains much to be done. I wonder, for example, what Dr. King would have said or would have done after the...

    SNIP A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said. To sell such changes, the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses. White House aides...

    <p>Osama bin Laden 'had stoned fantasies about marrying Whitney Houston and murdering Bobby Brown'</p> <p>Like all beautiful, successful women Whitney Houston had more than her share of male admirers. But few stars could have provoked such unwanted attention as that which the singer received from one of history's most depraved and despicable men, terror chief Osama bin Laden. Extraordinary as it might seem, bin Laden is said to have lusted after Houston, dreamed of marrying her and at one point even plotted to murder her husband Bobby Brown.</p>
  • Texas Republicans cross over to vote for Obama

    One of Sen. Barack Obama’s surest applause lines comes about halfway into his standard stump speech. It goes like this: “They whisper to me. They say, ‘Barack, I’m a Republican, but I support you.’ And I say, ‘Thank you. Why are we whispering?’” If the latest polling data are to be believed, those Republicans aren’t whispering in Texas, where 195 of the 228 delegates the state will send to the Democratic National Convention will be chosen in a primary and caucuses Tuesday. As many as a tenth of the Texans voting in the Democratic contests could be Republicans, and overwhelmingly...
  • The election is over. Does anyone feel like it was all a bad dream?

    The election is over. Does anyone feel like it was all a bad dream? What I mean is when you wake up from a bad dream and everything is fine, it takes a while to convince your conscious mind that it was all a bad dream. That's how I am feeling about this campaign now. We woke up Wednesday morning, and the prospect of a Kerry presidency turned out to be a bad dream, yet I still can't quite convince myself that these Rats are going to go away and leave us the hell alone now.
  • A Politically Weak President (an Al Hunt Wet Dream)

    The standard wisdom is this presidential election, like most, is about the incumbent; if true, John Kerry will be sworn into office next Jan. 20. President Bush is in a politically fragile situation, with little prospect of those fundamentals improving. This is reflected in this week's Wall Street Journal/NBC News national poll1, where a clear plurality of Americans believe America is headed in the wrong direction, lack confidence on the economy and Iraq and believe the country can do better than George W. Bush in the White House.
