Gore trying to buy mothers off

A mother's love may be priceless, but Al Gore thinks he can buy it.

Mercy strained too fine
In Florida's criminal justice process, the courts and governor wash their hands of responsibility for executing people who are seriously mentally ill.

Editorial Notebook: Diane Roberts
The fuss over fox hunting
LONDON -- It's been a bad couple of weeks for Prime Minister Tony Blair. First he gets booed in the middle of a speech to the Women's Institute (a cross between the Junior League and the Eastern Star, with a membership larger than the Labor and Conservative parties combined).

TALLAHASSEE -- It is astonishing to read the Declaration of Independence and reflect that the nation to which it gave birth practiced slavery on a vast scale.

Thereafter, it became ours, and we haven't quite come to terms with that burden even now, almost 150 years after abolition.
