Take the Commute

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

I used to commute up and down the NJ TRPK, the Path, the Parkway... Still, this "commute" seems a little easier... Like a Scooter on a short trip. I guess Libby can afford a quarter mil and a couple of years of probation. I guess Bush could afford ...

The Myth of Politics and Age

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

Have you ever heard the expression "If you're not liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not conservative at forty you have no brain"? I'm the opposite. As I get older, I get more and more liberal. It seems to me that brains are something you're born with, ...

Monday, June 11th, 2007

Here's an ad from the Coalition for America's Priorities. It says it all. While sleazy rightwing pundits and pols decry the antics of Paris Hilton, they work diligently to make sure she doesn't pay a dime of taxes on an estate she neither earned nor deserves. So, if you are a ...

Immigration Reform is Dead - Democrats are Alive
