“We should be infuriated at the increase 'again’ of the baggage fees on airlines and the fact that they have not been removed. This was supposedly started when gas prices were high and people could appreciate that meant more cost for airlines.

Why not call it what it is — another way to scam the public.”

“Ted Kennedy need not worry about meeting Mary Jo Kopechne in the next few days. I have no doubt he won’t be going anywhere near where she currently resides. He won’t be able to talk his way out of anything else.”

“Part of G.W. Bush’s book has leaked. On page 2 of four pages, Bush talks about how he could have prevented 9/11 but had
