Reality Check

No Yankee news. Now that’s a surprise.

And then there’s so many murderers, sexual predators, and a wide assortment of thugs in the NFL playoffs that it’s hard to watch without going to confession… we might as well review the news where the real action is.

There are Consequences...

Ms. Gabrielle Giffords was among a group of Democratic House candidates featured on the Web site of Sarah Palin’s political action committee with cross hairs over their districts, a fact that disturbed Ms. Giffords at the time.

“We’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list,” Ms. Giffords said last March. “But the thing is, the way that she has it depicted has the cross hairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they’ve got to realize there’s consequences to that.”

The image is no longer on the Web site, and Ms. Palin posted a statement saying “my sincere condolences are offered to the family of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today’s tragic shooting in Arizona. On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.” Late Saturday, the map was still on Ms. Palin’s Facebook page.

Even When You Shop

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said the Pentagon was investing in more weapons and technology in response to China's military presence.

The true cost of shopping at Dick’s, L.L.Bean, and WarMart doesn’t come on the cheap.

Have a nice day.
