House Rep. calls for Olympic ban - Thursday March 6, 2008 2:47PM

Ouch. I might need to place a few thousand phone calls to the voters in Virginia. - More Sports - House Rep. calls for Olympic ban - Thursday March 6, 2008 2:47PM A House Republican -- chafing over President Bush's plan to attend this year's Beijing Olympics -- wants to legally prohibit U.S. government officials from using federal money to go.

Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., cited concerns about China's record on human rights during a congressional hearing on Thursday and said Bush's presence would be akin to President Franklin D. Roosevelt sitting in the same stands as Germany's Adolf Hitler in 1936.
Wonder if Wolf ever heard of Adolph Kiefer or Jessie Owens?

I know Adolph Kiefer, an American hero and great man and business innovator -- plus Olympian in 1936. His life story includes a trip to the Olympic Games in German and many since then too.

re:, I ask if you know what gives with the monthly USPS "Friends of Fred Thompson" newsletters? 2/27/08 arrived from Fred Thompson who writes, "Let me assure you that I seek to return to 'first principles' and to reassert the concept that the government in Washington is the servant of the people, not the reverse. I believe it will require candor to lead America forward. And I deeply appreciate your confidence that I can accomplish that mission. ... You can catch up on developments by going to for the latest news."

But that website reads only "success" on an otherwise blank screen. So generous contributions provide THAT?
