Breitweiser’s Open Letter to Ann Coulter

Below, you will find Kristen Breitweiser’s open letter to Ann Coulter which is a response to Coulter’s smearing of the 9/11 widows known as the Jersey Girls in “Godless.” Breitweiser has a new book, “Wake Up Call: The Political Education of a 9/11 Widow.” This letter appears as the last chapter of the book.

Jubal’s Choice

Please take a few minutes to read Matt Cunningham’s (Jubal) commentary on the Flash Report here. Matt is soul searching on whether or not to vote for the Governor’s re-election because the governor is running more left of center than hard right.

New Poll: More Democrats than Republicans

Love it! from Rasmussen Reports: The number of Americans calling themselves Republican has fallen to its lowest level in more than two-and-a-half years.

I was headed up the 57 North to a client meeting today when I saw an electronic billboard at the Honda Pond advertise an upcoming appearance by Rudy Giuliani, a bastion of Republican family values right there with Newt Gingrich (three marriages) and Rush Limbaugh (four marriages), etc, etc. Matt Cunningham/Jubal posted a comment reply…
