READER COMMENT EXCERPTS

POLISCUM: JOHN EDWARDS

I developed a great admiration for Elizabeth Edwards and her approach to this traumatic experience in her life. I strongly suspect that despite the recent trials and tribulations, there must be a strong foundation based on something which may not be easily defined, which keeps them together. Let's hope that the family unit is not further damaged by whatever is disclosed during these hearings. - Inspector Clouseau

NY POLICE MAKE MORE POT ARRESTS THAN ANY OTHER CITY

If the legislative and jurisprudence functions of gov't. were controlled by Black people, we wouldn't have marijuana prohibition, we'd have snuff and chewing tobacco prohibtion. The complexion of the prison population would change overnight.

MAJOR PRISON RIOT IN CALIFORNIA

They pack those men in a "dormitory" three deep with no air conditioning. What did they expect? Charades? It will get worse before it gets any better.

BLASTING THE RIGHT IS NOT A POLICY

I really enjoy MSNBC's leftie shows. Yeah, sometimes Keith and Ed can be wrongheaded and overbearing but, you know, sometimes it just feels good to see people on TV who agree with me on something, and who take genuinely progressive positions rather than "liberal" ones a la Chris Matthews. I actually tend to agree with Sam more than just about any other leftish commentator I've seen but he doesn't have a TV show. And Rachel and Ed especially do a good job of calling out the administration for avoiding single payer.
