Justice with Michael Sandel - Lecture Summaries

Here's a fascinating web site from Harvard University... the first course Harvard has ever made available to everyone... JUSTICE with Michael Sandel
"Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth? How much value does society place on a human life? These are truly the 'big questions' of human existence, and they (along with many others) are discussed at length by Professor Michael Sandel of Harvard over the course of his popular "Justice" class. Now anyone around the world can sit in Sandel's theatre to partake in the course, courtesy of Harvard and WGBH. Visitors can view the 12-part lecture series in its entirety, and they will be privy to a wide-ranging set of conversations and dialogues between Professor Sandel and his students." >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2010. http://scout.wisc.edu/

Sarah Palin's Oil Regulation Lies

Can't resist sharing this article also. Look at what members of her own party in Alaska say about Palin! And something that really bothers me is all the folks that just refer to "Obama" (or worse) instead of "President Obama," while they still call her "Governor Palin." She QUIT being governor, doesn't have a right to that title any more. The President deserves at least the respect of his office, whether his name is Obama or Bush. This woman simply makes no sense whenever she opens her mouth... in my humble opinion. Dunn explains it very well:
