Revised proposal for terror law

06-10-2005 23:35

One man's fears are another mans dreams.

05-10-2005 20:20

This article is my attempt to connect with other readers who may share or not my feelings about the current state of affairs in this country and abroad. I am not a political genius, nor am I a published writer, just an average bloke on the street who thinks the world situation requires a response slightly more intensive than a change in the conservative leadership.
