Kyra Phillips and John Roberts discussed the “mixed blessing of the internet,” and agreed that there should be a crackdown on anonymous bloggers who disparage others on the internet.
This John Roberts is to the left of Shep Smith and Geraldo. One liberal propagandist cannot change a network, but he bears close monitoring.

This year marks the first Illinois election that any registered voter can cast their ballot by mail, no excuses necessary.
Even as the deadline for those ballots to be postmarked nears, problems are brewing.An Illinois county election official is telling the ABC 7 I-Team that thousands — potentially hundreds of thousands — of voters who are expecting a ballot sent to them by mail may be disenfranchised.Chicagoan Rosia Carter is one of 404,000 registered Illinois voters who recently received vote-by-mail requests that were sent by the Illinois Democratic Coordinated Campaign.

Here’s the problem I have with Oil Rig explosion.
Sorry for the vanity, but maybe some of you can help me on this…
“There was an explosion”. It’s pretty difficult to get a substance, particularly a gas, to explode unless it is confined in a pressure vessel. Hell, even gunpowder will not explode if you light it with a match unless it’s confined. Certainly not oil or gas or even hydrogen. It just burns.
Certainly their describing this as an explosion, but maybe that’s just semantics. Has there been a good description of what actually took place?
