Random Links for Tuesday 5 August

Haven't had time to post the last few days between our church festival and a messy home repair. So here's a few links for you:

Last week when I posted about the suspect in the 2001 Anthrax attacks committing suicide I surmised that his death would not mean case closed. Here is the first article making that case - Bruce Ivins Wasn't the Anthrax Culprit.

Oddly, the case has an local connection:
When he was a University of Cincinnati student, Bruce Ivins was rebuffed by a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, U.S. authorities say. And his decades-long obsession with the sorority may link the former Army biowarfare scientist to four anthrax-laced letters mailed in 2001.

Thomas Sowell weighs in regarding the investigation and how Steven Hatfield was labeled as a person of interest.

Recently, some of Sen. Obama's supporters, responding to Sen. McCain's video mocking Obama's celebrity status, have made a comparison between Obama and Ronald Reagan. Dan McLaughlin at Baseball Crank took that comparison apart. About the only similarity that remains is that both gained initial political prominence from one key speech. Obama gained national prominence from his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Reagan first major political speech was in support of 1964 Republican nominee Sen. Barry Goldwater. That is where the similarities end. Crank has video from both speeches and a rundown of what the men did between those speeches and seeking the presidency. Click the link to see the video.

Stupid story of the day: Is Death Row Inmate Too Fat to Die? Uh, NO! His idiot lawyer is arguing that the drug that is supposed to ensure he feels no pain from the process may not work because of his weight and other medications. Sounds like we are feeding him too much in prison. The second stupid thing is this story is this paragraph:
Cooey, 41, is sentenced to die for raping and murdering two young women in 1986. His execution is scheduled for Oct. 14.
Maybe he wouldn't be too damn fat for execution if we didn't take 22 years to punish him for his crimes. Jeez!

Pelosi’s church has not withheld communion. The way this article is written it seems to put the onus on her church to deny her communion. The question shouldn't be whether the Eucharistic Minister denied her communion at the alter. No, the question should be why is she presenting herself for communion? She openly and actively supports abortion on demand including public funding. That is an aggressive rejection of church teachings. Maybe she just needs to find another church, I dunno maybe she can find one that doesn't place much value on human life.

The death row case is absurd. 22 years. His innocence is not even in question.
