Did you just say the NYT said there were active WMD programs in Iraq prior to our invasion? You may want to give that article another read.

Drives me nuts to hear this while the budget situation was apparently so dire that transit was forced to cut $140,000 in costs. Who decides how much the city keeps in reserves?

Sounds like a place I might live if I decide to stay here long term and the one bedroom units are actually affordable. Good location except maybe for traffic noise.

Tim Keenan 1 week, 5 days ago on Report outlines benefits of coal industry in region

They spend more money on ridiculous PR campaigns than they would bringing themselves into compliance. And I'm sure there are parts of the regs that need to be changed. I just hope someone with a level head is actually working with the EPA to finalize them.

Tim Keenan 1 week, 5 days ago on Report outlines benefits of coal industry in region

I don't think anyone contends that coal isn't a major economic contributor to the region. I'd just like to see them innovate instead of stagnate. Spend their money on coming up with cleaner burning methods or other alternatives rather than trying to convince us that coal is just grand and we don't need anymore regs. Rather than working with the EPA to smooth out its proposal, they scream that they're poor, persecuted industry is being overregulated. They'd rather turn people against the EPA than work with them -- and I have to say, their strategy does appear to be paying dividends.

Good to see Egypt doing something useful with all that hardware we've given them.

And a lot of these right-wing settler types won't rest until all the Palestinians are driven into Jordan and the Jewish homeland is pure. I think Bibi's policies are designed to achieve this goal -- that's why these ultra-nationalists are allied with him. These are the same people who believe the assassination of Rabin was fully justified. I just hope Israelis chart a different course for themselves with this upcoming election.

I'd give the bully a bloody nose and do what I could to ensure he wouldn't try it again. I wouldn't go destroy the bully's house with his family inside in some sort of sick tit-for-tat game. I especially wouldn't imprison everyone on the bully's block, come to that, everyone in the entire neighborhood, take away their rights, and try to make them so miserable and destitute that they'll go beat up the bully for me. That's called collective punishment, and it's illegal -- for a very good reason I think. Or does Israel's entire policy sit just fine with you.
