In the news

I'm curious as to why I'm not reading more in the papers about the horrific famine in East Africa. You have to go online and search for updates.The Shabab is an evil organization, and while I understand the issues surrounding capital punishment, they sure seem a deserving bunch for just that.

Lastly, if Lamar Alexander is sincere in stating that his reason for stepping down from GOP leadership is to gain back some independence rather than be beholden to party leaders, then I say three cheers, Lamar!
