Old News, but Worth Mentioning
Jack Abramoff was sentenced to five years, ten months. Duke Cunningham was sentenced to eight years, four months. Matthew Lee Cloyd, Russell DeBusk, and Ben Moseley (the church burners) will probably get at least five years each. All I can think is - What a bunch of scumbags. I still get riled when I think about their crimes.
Jill Carroll was freed after 82 days of captivity. This is wonderful... and surprising. I've come to expect the worst from Iraqi kidnappers. As bad as Jill's captors were, they stopped short of the ultimate evil. Thank God.
Cynthia McKinney smacked a D.C. cop. I don't know what her story is, but I don't have a lot of sympathy for her.
Sounds like even Democrats are hanging her out to dry. She's finally answered the question in front of the entire country: "How privileged and powerful do you have to be so that when you blame your troubles on racism no one will believe you?" That, in itself, may be a healthy event in our nation's race relations. I haven't even heard of 'black leaders' speaking out in her favor. I hope the grand jury indicts and she gets a huge fine.
Well, she is a congressman, that should count for something. I certainly don't think she deserves to go to jail.Post a Comment
