I know a fellow from Lebanon who is more American than most Americans.
They got him. Put a couple of slugs in his face. Then they dumped his body in the sea - something for the fish, which don't much care what they eat, to feed on.

"I am blessed," said Great Bend artist Chet Cale earlier this week.

The problem with a lie-even one that everyone agrees with-is that eventually you can't ignore the truth. Enron can't paper over debt and crashes. The housing bubble pops. Now, as the rush towards using standardized test scores to evaluate teachers turns into a retreat, it might be time to face that standardized tests are a lousy way to hold schools accountable.
More fun than fourteen barrels of flunkies watching our elected officials exit Washington like scared rats streaming out of a sewer to escape Godzilla. And really, who can blame them.
