Reply to: Pro-Military Eye for the Russian Guy
from Arianna Huffington's column today (2/23/05): "Now the Bushies are taking things to the next level. Not content to buy their press coverage retail, they are producing and distributing their own news network. And, no, I'm not talking about Fox. It's the Pentagon Channel, a 24/7 niche network brought to you by the Department of Defense. Started last year as an internal public relations unit within the Pentagon designed to keep U.S. soldiers and their families informed about all things military, the network is now expanding its reach to the general public. A number of cable systems, including Time Warner, already carry the Pentagon Channel--and the Dish Network will soon begin beaming the station to its more than 11 million viewers right alongside the half-dozen porn channels the satellite giant offers."

Reply to: "Jeff Gannon's" Incredible Access
I wonder if Gannon as a Military Stud male Dominatorix Prosititute caused the bruises to President Bush when he claimed in 2002 that he had fallen off his sofa after choking on a pretzel. Gannon was seen in the Whitehouse during that time. I don't think the pretzel story is true. He certainly looks as though he was beaten. Seems hard to believe, but it's all hard to believe, and therefore the most extreme possibilities should not be overlooked. I think it's safe to say somebody in the White House was recieving some kind of military discipline from the man, that's what he was offering himself as. Bush has shown up to work with black eyes and scrapes on two occassions. What would anyone think of such a person in any ordinary work environment?

I have a question for the people at this website: Would it be ethical for a our organization, Born-Again Democrats™, to use mailing lists developed by unscrupulous Republican direct-mail operators to prey on naïve church-going Americans? We want to use these lists to raise money for ourselves? I ask because, in our case, we would not be misleading these people with impractical – because patently unconstitutional -- proposals to get prayer in the schools, or the ten commandments on the court house walls, etc. Our goals, while culturally conservative, and though you may not agree with them, are perfectly legit. And our mission is clearly stated up front: we plan to recruit a new kind of Democratic candidate for Congress who can defeat Republicans in 2006 throughout red-state America. Another question. If it would be ethical to use such lists, can anyone tell us where or how we might get our hands on some of them? No doubt you will want to check us out. To avoid misunderstanding, you’re better off starting with the blog before moving on to our homepage and platform. Please don’t make snap judgments, and be prepared to think outside the box. Thanks, Luke Lea BornAgainDemocrats.com/blog/
Reply to: Exxon's Secret Sponsorship of Climate Skeptics
Can anyone give me background information on the Annapolis Center for Science-Based Policy, and/or Harold M. Koenig its Chair and President? Many of us in Platte County, MO are fighting the building of a new coal-fired power plant in our area. The local town paper recently published a letter by Dr. Koenig touting the wonderful environmental benefits of coal-fired power plants. I'm doing research on this organization, and its funding and methods. Any solid information would be appreciated. Please email me at email@example.com Thanks. Antoniomo
