NOTES FROM THE EDITOR:

Guess it's time to let out the prisoners. Down there at ABU, about 1,000 were let out.
U.S. releases 1,000 from Abu Ghraib prison. Think they have been rehabilitated? Think they have paid their debt to society? Think they'll rejoin the enemy in Iraq?...This Katrina thing may get out of hand. It's now a Category 5. Poor folks down there in New Orleans. Looks like it might be the worst in 40 years. Katrina won't be a party for New Orleans...I guess there will be joy in Iraq! The Constitution committee signed a draft charter. All is well?...Is the world running out of gas? Do you think in a year or two you'll be pulling into your friendly Exxon station and the sign will say "Going Out of Business" Panic won't help rising gas prices...Are you patient with the war in Iraq? Is it winding down? Is there a light at the end of the tunnell? President Bush called for patience on Iraq mission on Saturday. The boys will be on their way home in time(on a Date certain) for the New Year's Day college bowl games... So says the junior senator from Wisconsin....What in the world are we going to do about North Korea? Do you really think those "jokers'' are "joking" around? Ted Galen Carpenter of the Cato Institute says First, Defuse the Bomb in North Korea... G. Gordon Liddy as a biomedically enhanced superhero? President Chelsea Clinton? Ambassador bin Laden of Afghanistan? This, and much, much more, in a new comic series....Pat Robertson recently made a statement that Hugo Chavez should be killed! Who is this guy? Does he really matter? Byron York asks Is Pat Robertson influential?..."Everyone will get it. Donald Trump qualifies... so does can the vice president, come to think about it. Your health or income don't make a difference."(Bob Dole, the Republican elder statesman, urging seniors to fill out the proper forms for the new Medicare drug benefit that will become available in January)
