phelps: PATRIOT GUARD RIDERS
As a openly gay transgender ex military I put my life on the line so that people like Fred Phelps would have all their rights. If the United States did accept gays it would be a better place.

It's primary day, so vote (or not)

No sale: Block Leininger's bid to mold Legislature
One seat in the Texas House: The bidding is now up to $500,000.

Details of Camp Delta inmates released to public
"...even this limited glimpse into the closed world of Camp Delta shows the arbitrary nature of the arrests which led to hundreds being incarcerated, without charge, thousands of miles from home.
The Bush administration dismisses the detainees' claims of innocence without trying them. "They're bomb-makers,'' Vice-President Dick Cheney said recently.

Human genes still evolving
Providing the strongest evidence yet that humans are still evolving, researchers have detected some 700 regions of the human genome where genes appear to have been reshaped by natural selection, a principal force of evolution, within the last 5,000 to 15,000 years.
The finding adds substantially to the evidence that human evolution did not grind to a halt in the distant past, as is tacitly assumed by many social scientists.
