It’s been a long time since Newman threatened Jerry with “when you control the mail, you control information.” There are just too damned many ways for information to flow, and mail is almost irrelevant.
President Bush and Vice President Cheney claimed they had repeatedly visited Dover AFB to honor American war dead. Their claim that this was done quietly, with no cameras and no publicity is now proven to have been a total lie.
I am not in any way condoning, endorsing, approving, or sanctioning the deplorable behavior of those ill-natured brutes who engaged in four rounds of fast and furious fisticuffs with Fox News reporter Steven Crowder.

When drafting the First Amendment rights, the Founding Fathers could not have imagined that one day, America would have a Fox News, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald or ADL and AIPAC.
I haven’t done one of these segments for awhile. They don’t readership numbers nor go viral, not like conspiracy pieces. Increasingly, as I gain “followers,” what had been a “labor of love” becomes more “hard labor.” With that goes any residual signs of wit or humor.
