"I should have been more precise."
(My bad: I took my own advice.)

"I firmly believe that nothing improper occurred."
(I'm completely lying with each carefully chosen word.)

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,  

Here's an article that has the statistics for 2002. Even though I am aware of the permitted violence in this culture of gun lovers, I was surprised at the number of deaths and how it gets buried. Daily, the numbers are small and go unnoticed by Americans, unless they read Gun Guys, but added together, it should be just as shocking as Bush's illegal war.

Washington, DC - John McCain heads to South Carolina today amid reports that his primary constituency -- the national media -- "has fallen out of love with" him, and that his high profile effort to re-launch his crumbling presidential campaign has been "a complete and utter bust."
