Bits & Bytes
- All part of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?--Indiana liberals have
shown remarkable paranoia and tech-illiteracy regarding the "year 2000
crisis." Remarked State Rep. Patrick Bauer, Democrat chair of House Ways
and Means Committee, "I somehow still have the feeling this was all
built-in obsolescence by the computer companies." Senator Vi Simpson,
D-Bloomington, asked "Will the elevators stop? Is my microwave not going
- Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!--In an October 29
letter to the editor in the Indiana
Daily Student, Jonathan Greenberg accuses
Shawn Peterson of being a blind follower of the Republican Party due to a
pro-Ellington column Peterson wrote. Greenberg is a Democratic activist,
and wrote several IDS columns against John Hostettler and in favor of
Gail Reiken. Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house, Jon.
- Say hello to the party of hate--After opening his remarks on NBC's October 25 "Meet The Press" with a
diatribe about how he personally dislikes Ken Starr and his staff,
Democratic strategist James Carville used the words "we hate" seven times
in fifteen seconds.
- Looking hard to be offended--IDS columnist Tony Green based his
entire October 23rd column on a previous IDS humor column outlining a
fictitional "Million Mutt March." Green long-jumps to the conclusion
that the author was comparing african-americans to dogs, then blames this
"attitude" on all of society.
- Did you hear that?!--Michigan Democratic Gubenatorial candidate
Geoffrey Feiger has been saying some pretty interesting things lately,
such as "Jesus Christ was just some goofball nailed to a cross." He also
called a high leader of the Catholic church a "nut." Of course, when
conservatives dare to malign liberals, they are assailed by the media.
Where's the outrage on this one?
- Not the kind of magic you want your kids to see--A former
member of the staff of Alfred Kinsey said "You would have to be
interviewed by Dr. Kinsey to understand the magic...there was really a
radiance about the man." This is the kind of radiant magician,
apparently, who hires pedophiles to obtain sexual "experimental data"
from children as young as 3 years old. (See article
