From today's JSMINETSET.COM Jim Sinclair’s Commentary I have the deepest respect for Dean Harry, but would normally not believe the potential for what dear Harry proposes.

To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may: Mark Twain


Go On, Admit It You Really Don't Like The Police, Either By Ted Rall Race long has been a classic predictor of attitudes toward the police. But high-profile cases of police brutality, coupled with over-the-top security measures taken since 9/11 that targeted whites as well as blacks, have helped bring the races together in their contempt for the police.
