If you've never heard of Jim Zumbo, you certainly won't now.

The outdoors personality and big game hunter had his weekly TV show on the Outdoors network and position as hunting editor with Outdoor Life magazine abruptly terminated last week for criticizing the use of military-style assault rifles by hunters to shoot coyotes and prairie dogs.

Dear Laura,

It has been quite awhile since I have written to you "mother to mother." A lot of water has gone under that proverbial bridge, huh? Remember, I wrote to you in August 2005, urging you then to assert any influence that you may have over your husband to help us bring America's sons and daughters home from Iraq. Many women at Camp Casey and around the world also wrote to you and those letters were delivered to your ranch on a very hot August day. You didn't answer me then, and judging by past unanswered letters to your husband and his mother, you probably won't answer me now. I have to try anyway.

Americans' Faith In Bush Badly Damaged


DNC Press Office

Washington, DC – President Bush's standing with the American people when it comes to the war in Iraq, fighting terrorism and the handling of intelligence has been greatly damaged. According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, two-thirds of Americans disapprove of President Bush's decision to escalate the Iraq War and a majority of Americans back a redeployment of troops in the region, which Democrats have advocated. Furthermore, only "thirty-five percent said they can trust the administration to report potential threats from other countries honestly and accurately," and only 41 percent believe that the Bush Administration will do "a good job of handling current tensions with Iran."


The real President of the United States of America had this to say in September 2002: "'I am deeply concerned that the course of action that we are presently embarking upon with respect to Iraq has the potential to seriously damage our ability to win the war against terrorism and to weaken our ability to lead the world in this new century,' Gore said. 'To put first things first, I believe that we ought to be focusing our efforts first and foremost against those who attacked us on Sept. 11. ...'"! The real President deserves a "Thank You" for his service, his vision, his experience, and most of all his concern for the human condition! "Thank You, Al Gore," for being a real man! "Thank You" for not being the egotestical, brass-balled, idiotic façade, the Supreme Court of the United States of America installed in the Oval Office in the year 2000! It's astonishing what a difference a man with a brain could have made!

In the late spring of 2004, when I was in Jerusalem, a white Episcopalian minister who had grown up in the deep South told me that if he had the choice of being a black man in 1950's Mississippi of his childhood or a Palestinian man in the West Bank today, he'd choose life in Mississippi.

Say it over and over again
Make it your brand new mantra:
This Bush & Cheney scheme
Is their very own Iran-Contra

Dick Cheney's little excursion across the world is complete, but what exactly did he accomplish? Frightful of the real world after his years hidden away from the public eye, Cheney's international escapades were also cloaked in secrecy.

Each morning, Debra South Jones drives 120 miles into New Orleans to cook and serve over 300 hot free meals each day to people in New Orleans East, where she lived until Katrina took her home. Ms. Jones and several volunteers also distribute groceries to 18,000 families a month through their group, Just the Right Attitude. Who comes for food? "Most of the people are working on their own houses because they can't afford contractors," Ms. Jones said. "They are living in their gutted-out houses with no electricity."
