This is a beaut

So, there's some lawsuits and legislation going through Congress on whether employers can require that their employees speak English -- in America. I nearly fell down laughing and hurt myself when this lawyer they had on Fox News' "The Big Story" was defending the rights of people to speak languages other than English on the […]

That iPhone ad

If you've been wondering, based on that iPhone ad about the pilot using his Apple device to check out Weather.com to get the plane off the ground, why all the airlines aren't issuing iPhones to their pilots -- here's why.

Don Surber has the complete video of Tuesday's Senate session -- all 30 seconds of it. (The pregame talk makes the total length 46 seconds.) Of course, Democrats are doing this so that President Bush can't make any recess appointments. I hope Republicans remember this sort of stunt when Democrats next hold the White House […]

Rep.-elect John James (MI) and Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt (TX) are close friends and are first two Black graduates of West Point to enter Congress. They are even from the same class! Both Republicans. No surprise there have been almost zero national media profiles of either or both.
