• "The easiest way to fix our country's two biggest problems--health care and social security--is to put the members of congress on the same plans...they'd fix them overnight!" says a contributor to the Rants and Raves column. So here's a question, have we ever asked our congressmen why haven't they considered this? Are have we? If so, what was their reply?

• Columnist Roger SImon asks this question: "How come the only racism that bothers some people is reverse racism? People of color have been oppressed for centuries in this country, and while progress has been made, it has come slowly. But Sonia Sotomayor makes one speech suggesting that her background as a Latina might actually give her superior insight or wisdom to a white man and there is an explosion -- an eruption! a volcano! -- of indignation. She is a reverse racist! She has dared to suggest that a non-white woman could ever be superior in any way, under any circumstances, to a white man. So how can she now sit on the Supreme Court (a court that for most of its existence has resembled a country club board)? Newt Gingrich, a former Republican speaker of the House, called her a "Latina woman racist" and said she should withdraw her name from consideration."
