Huffing & Puffing

Now you can skip the long afternoon in the hot sun on a wobbly folding seat and watch the graduation speaker from the comfort of your own desk chair.
In a speech to a friendly crowd at a University of Michigan graduation, President Barack Obama warned against extremist rhetoric on both sides of the political spectrum, saying that it could lead to violence. If you’re a regular Glenn Beck listener, then check out the Huffington Post sometimes. If you read The New York Times editorial page the morning, then glance every now and then at The Wall Street Journal. “It may make your blood boil. Your mind may not be changed. But the practice of listening to opposing views is essential for effective citizenship...”Good advice from the Prez, who recommends celebrating news diversity. He gets a demerit, however, for using the old violence ploy - blaming Republicans in advance for inevitable ugly behavior from the fringe.
