WMD search over The U.S. search for
weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has quietly concluded
without any evidence of the banned weapons that President
Bush cited as justification for going to war, the
White House said Wednesday.
ACCUSES SADDAM OF TELLING TRUTH
Just hours after confirming that the search for weapons
of mass destruction in Iraq was over, President George
W. Bush leveled his harshest charge ever at Saddam
Hussein, accusing the former Iraqi dictator of "knowingly
telling the truth" about not possessing WMD in
the months leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of
Iraq cleric's representative killed Insurgents
appear to be trying to send message to al-Sistani, strong
supporter of Jan. 30 elections.
U.S. lowering Iraq vote expectations
With just over two weeks until the Iraq election, the
Bush administration played down voter turnout Wednesday
in determining the election's legitimacy and urged Americans
not to get bogged in a numbers game in judging the balloting.
jurors speak out about flawed testimony
I listen to your show and heard a guy who called in on Wednesday's
show that he was heading to help sharpen and maintain animal
shears or clippers. Did he tell you his name? Do you know how
to reach him? I'm asking because I have an old pair of Animal
Clippers and need some parts and service. I live in Hebbronville.
You have the best Talk Program because you have INTEGRITY. You
have the unflinching courage to speak out on subjects and take
positions when you know many of your listeners will not agree
with you. You speak out when you know local, state, and federal
officials would rather you kept quiet. These qualities are extremely
rare in the world of Talk Radio. The vast majority of Talk Show
hosts are afraid to let their listeners hear anything which
intelligently disagrees with or contradicts the positions and
opinions of the host. ... I don't always agree with you, but
I always respect you and consider what you have to say. Thank
you for your program and please just keep on keeping on. You
are the best. Sincerely,
I am very disappointed in you. Had you done your research you
would have found these photographs from the Texas high school

Some excuses for being late or missing work.
I got up this morning I took two Ex-Lax in addition to my
Prozac. I cant get off the john, but I feel good about
its all the same to you I wont be coming in to
work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.
I really appreciate you addressing the issue of not finding
the WMDs and all that goes along with it. Our costs, loss of
young military people, hop-a-long-plans, and changing justification
for the reconstruction of a country with "suspicious behavior"
is insulting in more ways than one. The blank check for all
this is activity for Iraq is incredible. How sad it is to continue
funneling money out of the country as opposed to not improving
the programs, of which some are being cut, that meet the basic
needs (health coverage, shelter, education, food, etc.) for
many of our folks. ... I appreciate your show, fairness, and
reality of issues.
You speak of Bush neglecting to tell the People that the Folks
looking for WMDs have come home yet, after poking fun at Accuweather
for not mentioning that it was going to freeze over the weekend.
Damn, it looks like they were right after all. Okay Brad, wheres
gripe with AccuWeather, as usual, was not that they can't predict
the weather. They are pretty good at it. My gripe is that the
forecasts they provide for the hosts and news folks to read
on KTSA often do not even mention major changes that they KNOW
are coming. The forecast the other day didn't even refer to
the approaching cold front at all. -Brad

We enjoy your show and get where you are coming from but don't
you get frustrated sometimes when most people don't seem to
agree with you. I think that most of the public believe what
is coming down the pipes from the administration. In all my
life, I have never seem the amount of propaganda that is being
force fed to us. The neo-cons are playing mind games with us
and most of the general public is falling for it. But anyway,
keep up what you do.

i feel like I need to regularly reach out and let you know how
grateful I am that you are the voice of reason and sanity and
speak for many of us ... and the bonus is that you make it so
darn entertaining. Keep up the good fight.
PS: It's kind of scary, but definitely Ricci and maybe even
Trey seem to be drifting more to the center. Is this my imagination?
