Re: “Nicole Seitz writes about lasting love in her latest novel

I just finished The Inheritance of Beauty in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. Its very visual and the intricate plot, cutting between characters past and present, could be confusing, but in this wonderful book it just flows wonderfully.

Re: “Investigation Vindicates ACORN: No Criminal Activity

I looked at the video and thought it was pretty pathetic. The two kids who dressed up like a pimp and his ho might as well have been dressed up like Mickie and Minnie Mouse and have badgered that woman about buying a house for Pluto - so he could overthrown the government and get free Alpo. It is unfortunate she didn't throw them out - but like many people with difficult lives - they have a fundamental fear of white people who behave like punks demanding respect.

Now - do you think if I went into a Bank of America Bank on Meeting Street and was dressed like a Pimp - and brought a 19 year old girl from Ashley Hall dressed like a Ho - and asked the the teller what kind of advice she had for me so I could get a loan for my brothel/crack house - she wouldn't give me advice that's not that similar to what that elderly woman on the Acorn Video managed to get out? The difference would be negligible - the only difference would be Lou Dobbs soiling his depends as he commented on the whole sordid affair.

Re: “Investigation Vindicates ACORN: No Criminal Activity

There were a number of reports out on Acorn before all this that examined the way Fox, Rush, Glen Beck - the usual goon squad framed it in particular the voter fraud non-issue. It was all typical Fox - make some kind of accusation - that sounds like serious factual stuff, delivered with the outrage - of say, a professional wrestler as they climb into the ring - and wait for the response from the audience - which might be canned, arcival footage from a related event, or reinforcement by any number of right wing nut jobs who are always seeking more screen time.

But, Fox News, Rush, Glen Beck, the Post and Courrier - who weighed in with their own editorial on the matter - will never mention or report the finding - which is their contribution to their journalistic fair and ballanced. It would be an admission that "you caught us - we made the whole thing up - and because Sean Hannity said it, then Glen Beck said it, then Rush, then Gretta - then gee whiz - who would have thought it never had any merit.
