By Dave Andrusko Last year when the District of Columbia was debating an assisted suicide proposal, NRL News Today wrote several stories that illustrated the resistance of the District’s large African-American community and the hesitancy of Mayor Muriel E. Bowser who nonetheless signed the “Death with Dignity Act.” Last week the Washington Post—which was of …Continue reading "Not one person has used DC’s “death with dignity” law"
By Tim Graham The Washington Post launched a new double standard on the front page on Wednesday. On the top half of the front page came this headline: “Inauguration protest began as a vent: More than 100,000 say they plan to participate in Jan. 21 women’s march.” Liberal protests are more newsworthy than conservative ones. …Continue reading "WashPost Launches Hype of ‘Women’s March’ as Huge Inauguration Protest of Trump"
By Dave Andrusko I’m not sure how I ever got on their mailing list but there it was under the headline in gigantic typeface: “Victory.” Compassion and Choices–the formerly named Hemlock Society–boldly and happily announced that “D.C.
