Gypsy
here's something to be said for stage mothers. They can drive people crazy and even turn off their own kids. But they can get things done.

Clinton marked by scandal, corruption
Jan. 22 is the 28th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade which struck down all state laws protecting the child in the womb. This decision said abortion on demand at any time for any (no) reason was protected by the U.S. Constitution. It unleashed an abortion holocaust across our land which today totals at least 40-50 million deaths. Not since 1857 in the Dred Scott decision, when the Supreme Court ruled that the black man was not a "person," has that court blundered with such a violation of basic human rights and justice.

Ecoterrorism damaging environmental causes
The following editorial appeared in Tuesday's Chicago Tribune: The Fox, a schoolteacher who took the name of the river valley he wanted to save, got his start in Chicago's far western suburbs in 1969. He plugged sewer outlets of factories that fouled the water, crawled up belching smokestacks to cap their fumes, and once dumped a small coffin of dead fish and slime onto the white carpet of U.S. Steel's executive offices. His specialty: squirting skunk scent into buildings owned by polluters.

Jesse Jackson, diminished
The following editorial appeared in today's Chicago Tribune: The Rev. Jesse Jackson, seeking resurrection after the political near-death experience of his "Hymietown" remark, begged in his speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention for the understanding of his party and the nation. "I am not a perfect servant," Jackson said. "I am a public servant."

What we're made of
When I moved to Juneau 16 years ago I knew I had found my old neighborhood. It wasn't Texas, but the people who live here very well could have been any one of my friends down the block.

Add voices to the Ashcroft debate
President-elect George W. Bush ran for office on the platform of political cooperation. He said, "I am a uniter, not a divider." But with the nomination of former Sen. John Ashcroft as U.S. attorney general he is telling the American people that "all bets are off" because Ashcroft is certainly not a man who believes in uniting people.

Facing a critical year for reproductive choice
When dawn breaks Monday, Jan. 22, pro-choice and anti-choice groups around the nation will observe the 28th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States. The court ruled that the right to privacy extended to a woman's decision whether to terminate her pregnancy.
