A few of today's vexing questions



These are times that try men's souls. Just a few of today's vexing questions:

If President Bush holds most of the Saddam Hussein deck of cards, why are we still under siege in Iraq? Is Mr. Bush playing with the right deck (or a full deck)?

If the United Nations was irrelevant in March, why is it so important in September?

If eight years of Ronald Reagan, four years of George Bush the elder and three years of George W. Bush have given us more federal debt than the other 212 years of our history combined, should we allow the Supreme Court to decide any more elections?

Does Judge Roy Moore's stone image of the Ten Commandments break the second commandment? "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth ..."

If Paul and David were divinely inspired, is the term "moral majority" an oxymoron?

If Florida prevails in its lawsuit over water rights against Georgia and Alabama, what will Mexico bring against Arizona and California?

With Augusta's Aviation Commission and the California recall in mind, just exactly what did Tip O'Neil say: "All politics is local," or "All politics is loco?"

Where is the logic in recalling a governor who may gain only 49.99 percent of the vote and then elect a replacement with no more than 35 percent of the vote?
