Lance Hill | Back in September, it was hard to find an African American who had anything good to say about New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. Local hip-hop artist Juvenile’s song “Get Ya Hustle On” castigated the mayor as someone black people couldn’t trust. But things began to change in the following months.
Steven Wishnia | If homeowners are having a hard time coming back to New Orleans because of the lack of infrastructure, from potable water to public schools, the city’s renters have it worse: They have virtually no legal claim on their old apartments. The hurricane and floods destroyed or caused major damage to more than half the city’s 188,000 homes and apartments, according to federal Department of Housing and Urban Development figures.

Hoipolloi Cassidy | The high peak drama in Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" comes when Professor Gore explains how a frog dumped in hot water will jump right out, but if you gradually heat the water - at which point a collective gasp goes through the many sub-teen girls in the audience - and then Uncle Al seems to smile out at the kids and tells them, but we don't want the frog to be hurt do we, and the movie cuts to a giant cartoon hand pulling the cartoon frog from the jar and placing it on a lawn chair.

Howie Hawkins | “It saddens me that politicians like Bush and Clinton feel the need to attack the rights of individuals to affirm their life commitment to one another. Our political leaders should be helping to build families, not tear them apart.

In his weekly radio address, Bush urged the Senate to support a constiutional amendment banning same-sex marriages.
