Should a man who can't pronounce "nuclear" be allowed in charge of weapons?
The first part of George W. Bush's State of the Union speech yesterday was an incoherent grab-bag of soundbite announcements. Hydrogen cars! Woo!

Jolisa Gracewood in NYC
As I write, the windchill outside is minus fourteen degrees Celsius.
