good news, bad news

the good news: some people still have common sense.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Darrell Roberson came home from a card game late one night to find his wife rolling around with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway.

Caught in the act with her lover, Tracy Denise Roberson -- thinking quickly, if not clearly -- cried rape, authorities say. Her husband pulled a gun and killed the other man with a shot to the head.

On Thursday, a grand jury handed up a manslaughter indictment -- against the wife, not the husband.
i have to say, i completely agree with that decision. read the whole article for more context.

the bad news: unless he changes this position, rudy guiliani just lost my vote for 2008.
"There must be public funding for abortions for poor women," Giuliani says in the speech that is posted on the video sharing site YouTube. "We cannot deny any woman the right to make her own decisions about abortion."

When asked directly Wednesday if he still supported the use of public funding for abortions, Giuliani said "Yes."


"Ultimately, it's a constitutional right, and therefore if it's a constitutional right, ultimately, even if you do it on a state by state basis, you have to make sure people are protected," Giuliani said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash in Florida's capital city.
wrong answer rudy! a woman, poor or not, has no right to use my tax dollars for an abortion. she made the decisions that put her in a position where she "needs" an abortion, she can come up with her own funds for it.

rob at say anything brings up another interesting point: gun ownership is a consitutional right; and unlike abortion, is specifically mentioned in the constitution. does that mean public funds should be used to buy me, and every other american (with the exception of felons, people who can't/don't want to use them for some reason, etc.), a gun?

i'm really hoping now that guiliani loses in the primaries, or 2008 is going to be a really crappy year.
