"Clearly, the greatest threat, the greatest threat to our country is the war on terror. But we also have another threat, and that is out-of-control federal spending.

"By not 'disturbing' us with the visual horror of 9/11, the media made it too easy to forget the nature of the enemy that started this war. Maybe the moral clarity of 9/11 wouldn't have dissipated quite so quickly...if Americans had been confronted with those 'disturbing' images more often.

Ted Kennedy was out on the ledge naked. ... The highest gas prices in the nation are in San Diego at an average of $3.40 a gallon. This is especially tough on illegal immigrants. Do you know how hard it is to hide in the trunk of a hybrid car? ... Mexican President Vicente Fox was in the United States last week. He says he came here so he could speak directly to the Mexican people, one on one. ... He's in the U.S. for four days. Well, that's how it always starts. Four days, then three weeks, then four months. ... Former Enron founder Ken Lay and former CEO Jeffrey Skilling were found guilty in the Enron case.
