FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them.

It is a dubious honor that a photo from an article I wrote about the 40th anniversary of the My Lai Massacre in Vietnam, is one of the top picks on Google Images under this tragic subject.

Anti-gay activists have fallen short in their attempt to force a referendum on Oregon's recently passed domestic partnership law. The Secretary of State determined that the petition did not meet the 55,179 valid signature threshold required to qualify a referendum to the ballot. "This is a proud day for Oregon," Basic Rights Oregon executive director John Hummel said in response to the news. "It's unfortunate that this small group doesn't get the message: most Oregonians know that discrimination is wrong"
