WE REJECT the theory that `fairness' requires us not to notice the dominant gender, age range, ethnic character and religion of our terrorist enemies; and we urge the systematic use of such profiling to both make anti-terrorist screening more effective and reduce the overall intrusiveness of anti-terror measures on the majority of the population.
There's quite a bit more. One of the opening salvos proclaims, without anything vaguely resembling evidence, that:

Update: Slight correction on the Radio K tip. If they were NPR, I'd say they were having a pledge drive. In their terms, they're asking listeners to Buy A Watt.
Let me put it to you like this: I barely gots a pot to piss in and a window to throw it out of. . . and I'm tempted to call and offer 'em the toll change from the car to get 'em to shut the hell up.
No, there are no toll roads in Minnesota. You get used to dealing with them around Chicago, though, and old habits die hard. With a Vengeance.
