Do we need a new civil rights unit? An interview with Oregon Attorney General John Kroger
John Kroger wants to be an activist attorney general. Since being sworn in, he’s taken on predatory lenders, challenged the LNG terminal, and headed up the investigation of Mayor Sam Adams. Now he’s asking lawmakers to fund a new civil rights unit so he can sue Oregon companies that break our state’s civil rights laws. His request comes as lawmakers in Salem are facing a growing budget crisis and considering major cuts in education, family services, public safety and other essential services.

Joe and Abe solve the Curious Case of the Cowardly War-Mongers
Closing the Guantanamo Bay gulag would be nice and all, but not if we have to bring the terrorists back to the United States! Apparently they're all 10 feet tall with various mutant superpowers, and no American prison can hold them. As soon as we brought them here, they would break out en masse and start a cross-country rampage, burning and pillaging as their ranks are swelled by liberal America-haters and other ne-er-do-wells.
Joe and Abe examine the rank cowardice behind the Senate's vote to keep the Guantanamo prison open.
