RE: The case of Meacher vs. the Realm of the Sane: "This war on terrorism is bogus" is the kind of statement that, for the other side in this fight, unfortunately characterizes too much of what constitutes their "arguments." You feel sorry for them if they can't keep the side in order any better than that and prevent this journalistic equivalent of a sad, pathetic, attention-begging streak through the pages of the Guardian. It's supposed to be a liberal publication. Advice to editor: if it's target practice you want, you might find a better target than your foot.
And you might read today's op-ed dissection of your mistake in running the bilge in the first place.
