Question of the Day
You choose, John
And here we thought war protester Cindy Sheehan ”retired” from public view.
The mother of Casey Sheehan, who was killed in action in Iraq in 2004, and founder of Gold Star Families for Peace and the Camp Casey Peace Institute, says she will march on Monday from Arlington National Cemetery to the Capitol Hill Office of Rep.John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to request that he begin impeachment proceedings against President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney or both.
Among the many influential guests at Washington’s Army & Navy Club who turned out last night to celebrate the publication of Robert Novak’s memoir, “The Prince of Darkness: 50 Years of Reporting in Washington,” was Vice President Dick Cheney.
Mr. Novak commented that somebody saw him talking to Mr. Cheney and said, “Look at that — the Prince of Darkness standing next to Darth Vader.”
A “dress rehearsal” for the 2010 census is under way, being conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau in advance of what will be the most expensive head count in the nation’s history when adjusted for inflation: $11.3 billion.
The question now is whether everybody will get counted.
“The bureau is conducting its dress rehearsal … to test its design under censuslike conditions,” confirms the General Accountability Office (GAO), which already has observed “technical problems with the handheld computing devices used during the rehearsal by field staff for address canvassing — in which the bureau verifies addresses.
“If the device does not function as expected or needed, little time will be left for the bureau to take corrective action,” warns the GAO.
The bureau did not have to await the 2010 census to project that the U.S. population rose above 300 million as of January 1, 2007 — up 1 percent from New Year’s Day 2006. Currently, the U.S. is registering one birth every 8 seconds and one death every 11 seconds.
In their court
The future of the Republican Party hinges on the outcome of a basketball game, which currently finds the ball in the Democratic court, albeit with underdog Republicans perhaps coming on strong in the end.
