CSE Applauds Bush Education Initiative

WASHINGTON-Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy praised the content of President Bush’s first “official” proposal. The President’s education initiative took a huge step in the right direction by making the educational needs of America’s children its top consideration. CSE was particularly pleased that the final proposal included a school choice program that will allow the parents of poor students in failing schools to apply the federal aid their schools receive-about $1500 a year-to tuition for private schools or better-performing public schools.

Bradley said, “If legislation fails, you ought to have litigation.” Last week, former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who has endorsed Bradley, decried his former administration’s practice of suing the tobacco and gun industries.

Norton's Opponents Are the Real Extremists

The U.S. Senate is poised to begin confirmation hearings on what, oddly enough, has become something of a controversial nomination - that of former Colorado Attorney General Gale Norton as Secretary of the Interior. Oddly controversial because no one has suggested that she is unqualified for the position. Instead, her nomination has become a lightning rod for extreme environmental special interests, who cannot tolerate anyone that disagrees with their opinions in any way.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Wag the Nerd: A Production that Begat a Production

It was by coincidence that MGM’s “Antitrust” debuted the same day the Justice Department and 19 states’ attorneys general continued their own antitrust production against Microsoft. Both of Friday’s offerings depicted monopoly power and unchecked aggression. Unfortunately, both the government’s floundering case and MGM’s box-office dud are filled with so much inanity that neither can be taken seriously.
