Reading Assignment

The following two articles, written prior to the election, should be required reading for every American. Its too bad that more voters didn't read them before November 7th, but all is not lost: the War on Terror must continue, and the first step must be a stable, democratic Iraq.

There WILL be a quiz, and it will take place in 2008.

Keep that in mind when you vote today. Enough said.
