Not much time today, here's a few morsels

More from Pelosi's quest for a jet

"Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., the Pelosi ally who chairs the House military appropriations subcommittee, said he has spoken to Pentagon officials about the need to provide Pelosi with a bigger plane that can fly passengers coast to coast in comfort.

But he denied pressuring the Pentagon. "I don't need to pressure them. I just tell them what they need to do,'' Murtha said

Murtha said he is convinced the Pentagon has been leaking information about the possibility that Pelosi would use large military planes to make her look bad. But he said, "They're making a mistake when they leak it because she decides on allocations for them,'' referring to the Pentagon budget."

NY Times in trouble

First Air Amerika folds. Now, the NY Times is posting some pretty big losses. I know there are some other factors involved, but one can’t help but wonder how much of this is related to their blatant Leftward bias and one-sided commentary.

Economy grows more than expected.

Speaking of slanted news reports - The economy increased a surprising 3.5% in the last quarter of ’06, surpassing expectations, and yet 55% of Americans disapprove of the President’s handling of the economy. Does this make sense to anyone? Isn’t it obvious that people in this country are simply misinformed? They’re reading the slanted news reports, and hearing on CNN how bad the economy is, when in fact it’s actually pretty strong. It’s a shame that people tend to accept whatever they see and hear as fact without even knowing the facts.
