Sebelius: FDA Will Require Health Labels on Front of Food Packages

Sebelius explained:  "While sitting on the toilet Sunday, I ate a 12 pack of Peeps, and only then turned the package over to discover that,  instead of getting 100 % of my gluten requirements, I had consumed 1680 calories of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, Yellow#5 (Tartrazine) Potassium Sorbate, Carnauba Wax ... but Peeps are "Gluten Free!I crapped (not from the Peeps; just my morning dump)!  Had the ingredients been listed on the front of the package, I doubt I'd have eaten all of them. "

What's Not Happening to American Muslims
To hear Hollywood and the media tell it, American Muslims were the ultimate victims of 9/11. What nonsense.

It can't have come as a surprise that one of the now entrenched myths about America—namely, its ongoing victimization of Muslims—should have been voiced again by a leading citizen of our myth-producing capital, Hollywood. The citizen was Tom Hanks, and the occasion his March interview in Time Magazine in which he declared that our battle with Japan in World War II was one of "racism and terror." And that, he noted, should remind us of our current wars.

Since the events of Sept. 11, we've seen the growth of a view that American Muslims became prime victims of those terror attacks—isolated, fearful, targets of hostility. President George W. Bush, who went to Washington D.C's Islamic Center a few days after the terror assaults, told his audience that Islam was about peace and warned that the nation's Muslims must be free to go about without fear or intimidation by other Americans—remarks he doubtless thought were called for under the circumstances.

I do love Dorothy Rabinowitz.

,... was able to enter the vault of ScotiaMocatta (Canada’s only bullion bank vault) and see that shockingly, it contained roughly 60,000 ounces of silver and gold that he estimated as being worth approximately $100 million.
