    Nick Kristof has another liberal column in the NYT... however, it is worthwhile to read for 2 redeeming statements that are often overlooked in the blame game that many (especially myself) have engaged in.

    This is, as we say in the navy, unsat. From abortion to poor medical care, babies are getting a raw deal in this country right now. And no one wants to constructively talk about. Let's consider those floating babies in the water in the Gulf and start having that talk right now. (by the way, i think he's spinning that bs about the poverty rate declining sharply under clinton, though it may be true because of the economic boom)

    Agreed wholeheartedly. Too bad the left is run by the hyper-left loonies right now.

    and Jonah Goldberg at NRO (who about jumped the shark last week) responds to Kristof...

    again i don't totally agree with either of them, but it is good we are seeing this debate.... let us see if it continues and where it leads
