Condensed version


In the New York Times, Nick Kristof says conservative Christians should put their moral standards aside in the fight against AIDS - kinda like everyone says they should in debates on embryonic stem cells, cloning, abortion, etc.

Sadiq Reza, in the Washington Post, attempts to redefine “trespassers” as “visitors” in calling for some criminal immunity for Middle Eastern illegal aliens who register with INS.

Meanwhile, David Ignatius looks out upon the War on Terrorism through the eyes of an al Qaeda operative - and finds a shrinking, confused and demoralized jihadi world.

The Toledo Blade - one of America’s worst newspapers - has just discovered the Air Force is issuing amphetemines to its pilots on long missions, and blames the decision on the “politics” of long sorties.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer says the Bush plan to end dividend taxation would mean a return to the Great Depression in Ohio.

Finally, the LA Times - always good for a laugh - provides Oxford grad student Matthew Spence valuable editorial space to break the shocking and completely novel opinion that ... Bush practices unilateralism and cowboy diplomacy. Thanks for the update.
