“Peter Gleick lied, but was it justified by the wider good?” That question forms the headline for a revealing (and disturbing) column by James Garvey on February 27 in the Guardian. Revealing and disturbing, but not surprising, considering the fanatical ideology that drives so many of the green alarmists.

Prince George’s County in Maryland has been a dangerous place for drivers and pedestrians. In 2005, for example, the county saw a 100-percent increase in pedestrian fatalities and a 120-percent increase in traffic fatalities.

The Pentagon (left) released a report February 29 revealing that some cremated remains of individuals killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon, as well as from the jetliner that crashed in rural Pennsylvania, ended up in a Virginia landfill. The revelation came from a report by an independent Pentagon panel commissioned to correct procedures at the Armed Forces Mortuary at Dover Air Force Base. As reported by The New American, last year the Air Force admitted that from 2004 to 2008 the mortuary had disposed of the remains of at least 274 fallen soldiers in the landfill, after assuring families that it would deal with the remains of their loved ones in a dignified and respectful manner.
