As much as I may disagree with the senator on the right-to-life issue, I have enough common sense and moral integrity to differentiate between being pro-choice and pro-infanticide.

Christine Flowers has reached back into her bag of right-wing myths.
Bob Casey was denied the right to speak after Bill Clinton's nomination because he refused to endorse the candidate and work for his election.
Four other anti-abortion spokesmen were allowed to speak at the convention, but they had endorsed Clinton, and pledged to support the campaign despite their misgivings. Democrats, like Republicans, are entitled to exercise party discipline.
The right-wing media apparently think Democrats are so stupid they will allow people to speak at their expense at the convention to undermine their image with the public.

Also oppressed by homeless
Re Timothy Bullard's reply to Kate Frederick on the homeless:
Yes, Kate should count her blessings, but I understand her feelings.
When Kate says she's bombarded and harassed by people begging for money in Center City, she is absolutely right. If you don't give them money, they call you names to try to make you feel guilty. And how do you choose whom to give to?
Some of those begging for money make a lot of it every day. Some have scams, like pets, to try to make you feel guilty that the animal is starving. I finally decided not to give at all because I need the money I work hard for just as much as the next person.

Save the doughnuts!
Recently, my wife stopped in a Dunkin' Donuts. As she waited, employees were dumping trays of doughnuts in a trash can. When she asked why, they told her they were day-old. Why not donate them to charity organizations or sell them at a discount? "It's against the law," they told her.
It's a shame when so many people would appreciate receiving these doughnuts or buying them at a discount.
