Innocent people have been executed before, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed for giving the Atomic Bomb to Russia, even though George Koval a Soviet spy had long since escaped back to the USSR.

McCain flooded out by Obama’s cash

If you live in one of those so-called presidential battleground states the chances are about the only political sound you hear regularly is Sen. Barack Obama telling of his childhood love of America or of his plans to sort out the mess with the economy and revolutionize health care, or delivering a half dozen other different messages mainly knocking Sen.
