Mine eyes have seen the...

From the party that has been happy to have Strom Thurmond represent it in the Senate at his advanced age, using Frank Lautenberg's age as a negative in the NJ Senate race is pretty rich; one more example of expediency triumphing over fact and logic, never political consultants' strong points anyway (remember Lee Atwater?).

Non-prescription decorative contact lenses present potential health problems, the FDA says. As one who once wore contact lenses, overdid their usage early on and suffered some severe but short-term corneal abrasions, I can attest to the possible problems. Kids, do not get these without prescriptions!

The road to privacy hell is paved with good intentions, it appears. In his rage against child pornography, Mr. Bush wants to monitor chat rooms at an even greater funding level than already done. Call me paranoid, but I can see Ashcroft licking his lips at the prospect of monitoring dissent as well as naughty sites.

frank lautenberg has bigger issues than just age. word around the capital is that he is shrouded under the veil of alzheimer's disease. he has failed to appear at every debate and public apprearance so far and there is no word at all about his platform. all the vialbe replacement candidates took several big steps backwards when called upon to replace Torricelli. word is that if elected, he'll be replaced within weeks. "health issues"
