No Such Thing as Free Lunch

Like you, I sift through an awful lot of junk email each morning, but every once in a while there's a piece of very important business tucked among the pitches for foreign cruises and erectile dysfunction medication.

The American People Can't Be Trusted

So the conventions are over and we've entered the penultimate stage of this presidential demolition derby. Your muted murmurs of"yippee" and "hooray" have been duly noted. That's enough, put the horns away, this is not an overly large celebration.
