"Deficit talks in danger as Cantor bails

He says Obama must resolve tax issues."

The Republicans say that they will not agree to any sort of tax increase. How do you "resolve" an issue when there is no other side to it? I guess that "resolve" now means "cave-in".

Graphic Warnings on Cigarette Packs

The photographs of rotting teeth and gums, diseased lungs, and smoke seeping from the throat of a man with a tracheotomy are part of a nine-picture package just released by the Food and Drug Administration.

These horrifying images remind me of giant images of dead fetuses that anti=abortion groups display on large trucks that they bring to political events.

Overbearing, overkill, despicable.
