Ashcroft said that the reasoning was that the cases involving minorities were more atrocious than whites.
He also said that the discrepancy in the numbers happens because prosecutors seek the death penalty
more often in districts where there are more minority defendants than whites.
There are so many holes in this logic and so many directions to shoot it down, I'm not sure where to begin.

Reagan Memorial Suggestions
Here in Illinois, The Land of Lincoln, and
the birthplace of Ronald Reagan, we have the unique opportunity
to transform a monument to one albeit great, but out-dated president, into a monument for two, including
our beloved "Gipper". with a little work and ingenuity, the Abraham Lincoln Tomb could become a fantastic
Ronald Reagan Memorial. by mounting the crypt that contains Abe's coffin on a large rotating spindle,
much like a rotisserie, President Lincoln can spend eternity turning over in his grave, what with
Ronald Reagan being elected as a Republican, the "Party of Lincoln".
"According to the latest poll, 53% of
Americans approve of the way George Bush is running the country.
The other 47% said 'You can't fool us, we know Bush isn't really running the country.' ”

I sent the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project
my suggestion for a Reagan
Memorial in my state, Indiana. Here is the text of my e-mail:
'The death chamber at the federal penitentiary
in Terre Haute, where
Timothy McVeigh was executed. A plaque with Reagan's famous,
"Government isn't the solution; government is the problem" would be really nice.
And a picture of St. Ron blessing his apostle
Timothy would round out the picture quite well.'

For many years now, I've been assembling
a collection of horse and cow
droppings that bear amazing resemblance to the late great Ronald Reagan.
I think a tasteful roadside museum or facility

failed to report to combat duty
at rates many multiples that of men. When you don't show up for your combat
assignment you are effectively sabotaging existing battle plans. On one ship,

-- David Horowitz, (R-GothisasskickedbyJoeConason)
Mr. Horowitz, you have fallen into a trap just like Laura and the vulgar Pigboy did.
Mr. Horowitz, could I ask a question?
If our trained military personnel can't stop themselves from having sex,
why does your party insist "Just say no" is the best defense against teen pregnancy?
They are more mature than teenagers.
They have more training and more control than teenagers.
They are more responsible than teenagers.
But you say they can't control their sexual urges,
but teenagers should be denied condoms because "abstinence always works?"
You, Sir, are either a liar, an idiot or a whore.
I'm sorry, I shouldn't underestimate you that way.
You could be all three.
CHANDRA LEVY HAD LOST HER JOB
Missing intern Chandra Levy was distraught over suddenly losing a job she loved
- and cops are also looking for a missing uncashed check, it emerged yesterday.
As the mystery into Levy's disappearance
deepens, authorities are trying to paint a portrait
of the secretive intern's emotional state and the nature of her relationship with "close friend"
Rep. Gary Condit (D-Impeach). Detectives have become increasingly suspicious of Condit's behavior,
and Levy's parents have said Chandra may have been having an affair with the conservative congressman.
This guy looks more guilty every day.
Since he voted to impeach, he deserves no privacy.
I'd like to see the networks all over this guy.
...and where the hell if Fox Whore News?
The guy's a Democrat, (at least officially) so why isn't Fox pounding him?
I hope the Democrats don't lay down in 2004 the way they did in 2000 and 2001.
I spent most of the weekend watching the All in the Family marathon.
I had two thoughts. (That's a lot for me)
One was how much Archie is like Tony Soprano.
I'll bet Carroll O'Connor was a hero to James Gandolfini.
They're so much alike, except for Tony's multiple homicides.
They're both uneducated bigots who malaprop themselves crazy.
Remember that time Tony was at Dr. Melfi's and said he'd just been to see his friend
in the hospital, and that his friend had a cathode tube inserted into his penis?
Damn, I'll bet that hurts.
If you think about those two, they're so similar.
The other thought I had was more of a question.
Watching Archie bullying Edith, I noticed he uses the Bible for his excuse.
"The Bible says the woman must submit to her husband - case closed."
But what if you're an atheist and you want to bully your wife?
Without the excuse the Bible conveniently provides, how does the bully rationalize his brutality?

"Fast and Furious" Speeds to Victory
The Fast and the Furious crashed and dashed to a whopping heap of cash.
The gangland street-race saga screamed in
with an estimated $41.6 million, making road kill
of Dr. Dolittle 2's talking critters, which earned $26.7 million in second place.
The Fast and the Furious, Universal's PG-13
rated actioner starring Vin Diesel as leader of a group of
hotrod daredevils, averaged $15,830 at 2,628 screens, according to preliminary studio estimates Sunday.
Budgeted at a relatively modest $39 million, the high-energy crime flick, which received mixed reviews,
scored bigger than even its studio executives anticipated, attracting a multiethnic audience that was 55
percent male and 76 percent under 25.

Anna Nicole challenge will be allowed
A federal judge denied former Playboy Playmate
Anna Nicole Smith's (picture not available)
request to dismiss a challenge to a court ruling that gave her $475 million from her late husband's estate.
U.S. District Court Judge David Carter, who is handling the appeal brought by her late husband's son,
said Tuesday he won't dismiss the case. Smith's attorneys had argued the size of the judgment was justified
because her late husband's son ignored court orders.
However, Carter said such a sanction was extreme
and only should be undertaken as a last resort.
Smith, 33, lost a Texas court battle in March over the fortune left behind by her husband, oil tycoon
J. Howard Marshall II. The Texas jury found that Marshall made no agreement to leave part of his
estate to son J. Howard Marshall III or Smith. The jury ruled in favor of E. Pierce Marshall, another son
of the tycoon. But a California bankruptcy court awarded Smith the money before the Texas case was resolved.
Hey, the girl deserves some money.
She had sex with the old goat and made his last years happy ones.
If there's $475 million in question, give her $47 and shut this circus down.
Besides, we all know what crooked cesspools Texas courts are, anyway.
From: Tamara Baker
Subject: Gary Condit
Good to see you and Josh Marshall (http://www.j-marshall.com) are on the Condit case.
See, the difference between Democrats and Republicans
is that Democrats punish their malefactors
and Republicans PROTECT theirs. (See George W. Bush's life story for further clarification.)
Another thing: Yes, Condit did vote to make impeachment
possible, though at the last minute he
remembered he was supposed to be upholding justice and voted against impeachment... kind of a
"have your cake and eat it, too" thing meant to appeal to the knuckledraggers in his district.
For the scoop on Condit and impeachment, go here:
Meanwhile, check out what Josh Marshall has to
say about why the Washington Press Weenies
-- who savaged Clinton for letting Monica seduce him -- let Condit get away for so long with his
non-denial denials about his potential involvement in something that's far, far more serious:
the all-too-likely murder of Chandra Levy.
The difference (besides the inconvenient fact
that what Bill and Monica did wasn't a crime,
while the murder of Ms. Levy definitely would be):
The Washington Press Whores LIKED Condit.
Still do, as a matter of fact. (Otherwise, this story would be on MSNBC 24/7, and deservedly so.)
They like him so much that they were willing to
spend the first six weeks after his intern's going missing
by sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting "LaLaLaLa I can't hear you!", even as Condit's
statements got screwier and screwier.
They like him so much that even now, his story
barely rates the occasional mention on network TV.
Why do they like him?
Because he was one of the weak Pink Tutus on the
Dem side who was perfectly willing
to bow to right-wing media pressure and backstab Bill Clinton.
And isn't it ironic that his media buddies, so
quick to attack Clinton for carrying on with Ms. Lewinsky,
were so slow even to publicly acknowledge what they, and apparently half the Beltway, already knew:
that Ms. Levy was Condit's girlfriend?
On one level, it really was about the sex -- but
on another, deeper level, it wasn't about the sex.
It was about payback for Watergate.
Among other things.
It seems to me that anyone who voted for more sex details in Clinton's impeachment
loses their right to say, "But this is private" when they get caught.
America - what a country
The reason they fly the new planes from the future near Area 51
is because it's so far away from people.
But, since this is America, where money is everything, Lockheed Martin and Northrup and the others
have to file for patents on these secret planes - or someone else can steal the design.
And when you file for the patent, you have to give them a picture, like this.
That looks a little like that F-117 those Lifetime Channel dudes saw.
Check out this bad boy:
...and the forward swept wing aircraft.
Click Here for more details.
So, while they go to extreme lengths to hide their secret toys,
they also provide drawings for public inspection at the patent office.
What a country!
All this talk of Area 51 is giving me Vegas fever.
Reagan Memorial Suggestions
How about a Ronnie memorial right in the
heart of downtown San Diego? Say, Horton Plaza, for instance.
That's where the largest contingent of homeless people congregate in San Diego.
Thanks to the Reagan/Bush administration's
failed "trickle-down" economic policy, uber-high deficit spending and
"dumping" mental patients in the dead of night in major cities, I think a tribute to RR and the homeless would be in order.
Hmmmm, maybe a bronze statue of Ronnie with scores of homeless underfoot.
Ooooh, I can see it now...

George II's Bad Week a Sign of Things to Come
The number of respondents who say outright they don't trust Bush climbed from 33 to 40 percent in six months.
The bad news for Bush continues. By a 2-1 margin, the poll found, Americans support protecting the environment over
producing more energy. Almost three-quarters think Bush should take immediate action to stop global warming, and more
than half say he should sign the Kyoto protocols. Seven in 10 back a patients bill of rights, even if healthcare costs rise.
A whopping 57 percent believe his policies favor the rich, compared with 27 percent who think he treats all groups equally.
"On a host of issues," the New York Times observed, "the respondents' views are closer to those espoused by Democrats
than those of Mr. Bush and other Republicans."
