ALL THINGS RECONSIDERED :

Like a crack addict who has accidentally lit his hair on fire repeatedly, but keeps firing up, NPR is hard for a conservative to resist. The two stroke inducing moments on tonight's All Things Considered were the snippet from the steps of the Supreme Court where the current Dartmouth student who is pursuing the highschool drug testing case said something to this effect : "Just because you're a student doesn't mean you aren't a citizen with full constitutional rights!" As Antonin Scalia said during oral arguments (again I paraphrase) : "That's ridiculous. They're minors. You can imprison your kids for not doing their homework" and the report from France where people are refusing to help the US investigate Zacarias Moussaoui, because he faces the death penalty. One of the interviewees actually had the gall (gaul?) to say that they refused to "collaborate". Ah yes, the proud French, they can't load Jews on boxcars fast enough when the Hun rolls into town, but they refuse to help convict a terrorist. Posted by Orrin Judd at March 19, 2002 7:26 PM
