Hollywood's Trash, Society's Treasure

By Lila M., published on Feb 23, 2008

...circus that was Paris going to jail, it wasn’t the fact that she was a Hilton or among the wealthy that we all cheered. In fact, it had everything to do with how defiant she was in breaking the law and spitting on morality. She was the one quoted as saying that she had been pulled over by Police simply because she was “hot”. In the face of this claim, justice has prevailed for the 84% of the population who doesn’t live the “hot” Hilton life. This slap to the face sends a clear message to the rest of this group of raunchy and reckless waste who think they can buy their way... (more)

Cops On Roids? Where The Hell Is Congress?

By Nick Cobb, published on Feb 18, 2008

... made Roger Clemens the first ballot hall of famer he should be. I felt uncomfortable watching this hero of sorts squirm in his chair for nearly five hours while being cross-examined by members of Congress. He wouldn't stand a chance against a real lawyer on the stand.Reading the story about the police officer who was distributing steroids, not just taking them, I have to wonder why Congress isn't doing more to investigate this incident and the many others that have surfaced recently combining cops and roids. I'd like to think they see a greater risk in a man (some barely old enough to be out ... (more)

The Return Of Big Brother In Putin's Russia

By Chris Jones, published on Feb 12, 2008

...Times has an interesting Op-Ed about how President Putin has built up Russia’s security apparatus to the point that it now it exceeds the power the feared KGB once held in the Soviet Union.

As a former KGB man himself, Putin has spent his Presidency rebuilding the secret police and intelligence services that former President Yeltsin dismantled. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the KGB was reborn as the FSB as it is called today.

Bus Stop 101

By Lynn Downey, published on Feb 12, 2008

...in the paper our bus stop group was deep into a Zodiac discussion when we heard the familiar sound of grinding gears coming over the rise, so we got into our accustomed places in line. But we were dumbstruck when something black and white met our line of vision first.

It was a police car.

It pulled up in front of us, the engine idling. Our bus stopped just behind it and we got into our seats without a word. We all knew what this meant: if the Zodiac was going to shoot out our tires, he’d have to do it with the police ready to pounce on him. We suddenly felt ... (more)
