They Got Him

I'm sure you haven't missed the news that they got him! The Notorius terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and other aides have been killed by American forces. Al-Zarqawi is responsible for much of the death and destruction in Iraq. This is good news for Iraq and good news for the free world.

Just to be clear, I don't want to celebrate anyone's death. Simply that because this terrorist mastermind has been eliminated, many more lives will be saved.

I don't understand the above comment...

However, I'm returning to your site to locate your piece on proportional representation. Could you highlight it somewhere. I think we have to be very much concerned about every vote counting as this is mounting south of the border as its been highlighted in the news all week.

Thanks, will return later to see if it shows up. I'm relatively new on web and am fascinated with diverse points of view relative to social and economic justice.

Sorry, The first comment was Spam, I've deleted it. My piece on proportional representation was one of my earliest posts and was called A Threat to Democracy. I've also recently added it to the "Best Of" section on the left hand bar.

I hope you find it useful. I think that proportional representation is like all the best really bad ideas. It's a concept that seems right instinctively, but actually has the potential to cause serious damage.

Happy Reading,
