On a more serious note ...

... but the same subject -- Bush's leadership -- Brummett takes on the administration's  appeasenik theme. A suggested response for Democrats:

They should make the plain and evident case that the Bush administration has not confronted the evil enemy, but deployed a defensive, reactive strategy that emphasizes intercepting attacks that are in the works, not going to and destroying the persons actually doing the planning. Police work over military action, in other words.

And this strategy asks only one sacrifice of the American citizenry. It's not one of public service or rationed resources or a special tax. It's a sacrifice of our Constitution and its protections against governmental invasions of our privacy.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
