Amidst dark days, like the Obamanation that will follow the 2008 election, Christians should keep this powerful message in mind that Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests For Life delivered in the U.S. Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that smelly tourists won't be a problem in the Capitol anymore thanks to the costly Capitol Visitors Center that opened today.

By K. Daniel Glover YouTube is promoting as its "citizen news report of the day" a video of an alleged attack on Greenpeace activists at a coal plant in Poland. There are two problems with the news judgment behind this video selection. First, both the initial report on the video and YouTube's description of it overstate what actually happened. Watch the video for yourself and see. Aside from some unjustifiable shoving, kicking of snow and grabbing of signs, there is no attack. In one instance, the pushing is to get protesters out of the way of an oncoming bulldozer. Another clip appears to show a coal miner helping up a protester who fell, and the Greenpeace activists eventually are allowed to display their "Quit Coal" banners without interference -- presumably on private property where they had no right to be. But the bigger problem with the news judgment in this case is the blatant double standard at work. Why is YouTube helping to publicize an obscure, pro-environmental protest in Poland while ignoring citizen journalism reports of recent bad behavior by protesters that are far more noteworthy and much closer to home?

Kids who want to learn how to cheat rather than learn something useful won't get any help here. But they can always go to YouTube, where standards are lower. (Full CBS video report)

By K. Daniel Glover Sen. Ted Stevens has been the bane of many a conservative's existence ever since the Alaska Republican's name became synonymous with the plan for the infamous "bridge to nowhere" in Ketchikan, Alaska. His reputation tanked even further last month when Stevens was convicted of seven felony counts in a corruption case. That explains why few conservatives are concerned with yesterday's news that liberal Mark Begich will replace Stevens in the Senate come next year. Some conservatives are eager to see Stevens go. But it would be a shame for him to go without a proper video send-off because Stevens is one of the first stars of the online video era in politics. With that in mind, I spent some time searching YouTube today to compile a video collage of sorts in his memory.

These clips are excerpted from two interviews that the Anchorage station KTVA conducted with Republican Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska this year.

Asked about the status of an "economic development" earmark for Adak, Alaska, Sen. Ted Stevens confessed that "it's sorta hard to keep track" of his barrels of pork. (Full video)
