Sunday Morning News

Behind all the political rhetoric and ideological posturing about abortion is the real-life drama of those who must have the procedure. This morning's New York Times has a wonderful feature article about one of the two abortion clinics in the state of Arkansas and the women who must go there. It's beautifully done and does what good journalism does -- makes the debate real and personal.

In an odd juxtaposition, the NYT front page also featured an article about efforts to increase interest in hunting among young people. In the words of one hunter:
"Hunters should be included as an extinct species because we're falling away so fast, we need to be protected."

The NYTimes reports that Former President Clinton gave W hell on ABC's "This Week". And the best advice of the day came from Illinois Senator Barak Obama appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation" who suggested we need "adult supervision" over the federal budget.
