Landrieu Threatens White House to Get Levee Funding

The Louisiana senator says she will hold Bush’s executive-branch nominees hostage until he agrees to more funding for the Katrina-ravaged state.

Homeland Official Charged in Internet Child Seduction Case

Homeland Security Dept.‘s deputy press secretary allegedly tried to seduce a Florida sheriff’s detective who he thought was a 14-year-old girl.
Troubling for two reasons: (a) This shows the moral fiber of the people entrusted to spy on Americans; (b) this shows the incompetence and foolishness of the people entrusted to secure our borders—this kind of sting is the oldest trick in the book.
