Most lands us in trouble. The word most gets us in trouble, not most people. When we want to lay claim to the popular position or opinion we use most; even if we know it runs into the wall of fallacies. Read More
Gary Webb lived like a leper, ostracized by the very community of investigative story seekers of which he was apart now gutted by Corporatist interests. He was The Pariah.

Indefensible logic supports many an argument. My mentor noted a few years ago his Seminary education, even is college experience, would have been better had it included a good dose of logic. I agree.

Marty closes his post with this,
In an essay last year in Slate, William Saletan admits what defenders of children have long argued: there is no logical difference between the killing of an unborn child and a born child. Says Saletan regarding the euphemistically termed “after-birth abortion”:
The case for “after-birth abortion” draws a logical path from common pro-choice assumptions to infanticide. It challenges us, implicitly and explicitly, to explain why, if abortion is permissible, infanticide isn’t.Yes, William, it does.
I would add it also challenges you to own it and admit it. Your ilk has long said pro-lifers only care about unborn children, not born ones. It is clear now that those who support the infanticide called after-birth abortion care about neither.
