I can't imagine what it would be like to be living in a more insane atmosphere than the one we are. But, to be Paul Krugman, living in NY and writing for the NYTimes, must be very surreal.
He's been one of the few consistently sane voices in the US media and this piece shows how disgusting the so called US "justice" department is looking. Lets integrate so we can disintegrate.

Travesty of Justice
by Paul Krugman
No question: John Ashcroft is the worst attorney general in history.
For this column, let's just focus on Mr. Ashcroft's role in the fight against terror. Before 9/11 he was aggressively uninterested in the terrorist threat. He didn't even mention counterterrorism in a May 2001 memo outlining strategic priorities for the Justice Department. When the 9/11 commission asked him why, he responded by blaming the Clinton administration, with a personal attack on one of the commission members thrown in for good measure.
We can't tell directly whether Mr. Ashcroft's post-9/11 policies are protecting the United States from terrorist attacks. But a number of pieces of evidence suggest otherwise.
