Ann Coulter Update
Ann Coulter is nationally notorious for vitriolic broadsides, but she has been
unnerved by invective she received at her Palm Beach home. So much so that she
got the county property appraiser to remove her name from public records
identifying where she lives.
In doing so, she won an exemption from public disclosure of her address, allowed by law for victims of stalkers or harassment.
Mike Huckabee ripped President Bush Sunday for not speaking out about the Saudi rape victim who was sentenced to two hundred lashes. The president's afraid to say anything. His father is so close to the Saudis that King Abdullah packs his parachute. - Argus Hamilton

America the Beautiful: Poverty = Warrantless Searches
The Supreme Court
rejected a challenge Monday to a county's practice of
routinely searching welfare applicants' homes without warrants and ruling
out assistance for those who refuse to let them in.
The justices refused, without comment, to intervene in the case from San Diego County, where investigators from the local District Attorney's office show up unannounced at applicants' homes and conduct searches that include peeking into closets and cabinets. The visits do not require any suspicion of fraud and are intended to confirm that people are eligible for government aid.
Failure to submit to the searches, which can last an hour, disqualifies applicants from assistance.
