Regarding the Family Research Council article on the Interior Department
issue, Steve Hoar asks:

No one on this list needs to discredit the FRC, Steve - they have done
that very well themselves through their own writings. Admittedly, any
sensible person expects some personal "slant" from even the most objective
of news sources, but we have come to trust that "news" will at least try to
present a balanced picture and accurately represent facts. The FRC doesn't
even try, nor do they claim to. They are right up front: they have a
conservative agenda, and their writings are designed to further that agenda.
Ed's witty saying for this week:
If it's called "tourist season", why can't we shoot them?
