For your perusal:
—- Has 60 Minutes been duped – again? Gateway Pundit examines a news story they recently did on Karl Rove regarding disgraced former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and Rove’s “role” in Siegelman’s downfall and finds the sourcing highly questionable. So does the Alabama state GOP. Make sure to read the whole thing.
—- Blackfive posts that our patatroopers in Afghanistan need a morale boost. Visit his site to find out what you can do to help. For that matter, after you send an email to support to our paratroopers in Afghanistan, go here and show your support for all of our combat forces fighting overseas to keep us safe here at home.

A family member discovered the ricin Thursday after visiting to pick up his things. Authorities have ruled out terrorism but still don’t know how the ricin got there.
—- Uh, waterboarding as a motivational tool to increase sales?
—- Last but certainly not least, congrats to Bob Owens and his wife and their bundle of joy, who first graced them with her presence on Valentine’s Day. The latest addition to the Owens family is absolutely beautiful
