A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Credit for the most outrageous comment of the day goes to Larry Joe Doherty of the Foxnews show "Texas Justice." Appearing on the "O'Reilly Factor," the lawyer attempted to defend child-killer Andrea Yates. Doherty contended that Yates was insane at the time of the act. That she didn't know right from wrong.
O'Reilly: "Then why does she call 911 after she kills her kids? Explain."
Doherty: "That's a fact. That's not any evidence that this woman is in her right mind. Just because she knows that 911 is a place to call for help."
O'Reilly: "Why does anyone call 911?"
Doherty: "Well somebody had to come take care of the mess."
O'Reilly should have slapped him. Five murdered children shoud never be discounted as a simple "mess."
